All Strings Attached

Most teachers recommend for students - especially beginners - to continue their string education over the summer months with orchestra camps or private lessons. Staying involved during the summer months is important for maintaining important skills, and string programs provide your student with a fun environment for creative activities, building relationships, and music education.

If you are interested in private lessons, please speak with your school teacher for suggestions in your area. We are also able to provide our customers with recommendations for private teachers throughout the Twin Cities - please call or email for additional information: 763-542-9542 or
