The Pathways to Music string program is unique in that it involves both individual tuition and ensemble lessons. Students are able to hone their individual technical skills and receive one on one, tailored lessons as well as developing the skills required to play successfully in a group with others.
Ensembles are tailored to the interests and capacities of individual students, and students are also strongly encouraged to undertake Musicianship Classes.
Select students who learn a string instrument outside of the Pathways to Music program are also able to participate in the ensemble program. Placement in an ensemble on these grounds is decided by recommendation and/or audition and is dependent on students’ technical and performance abilities.
