The String School offers string instruction to students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades who do not have string instruction during the school day, and it also serves as an extension of the 6th - 12th grade instrumental programs offered during the school day. We offer lessons on the violin, viola, cello and bass.
GRADE LEVELS: 3rd - 12th grade students
LOCATIONS: Mondays: Horace Mann Middle School; Thursdays: Franklin High School
