About

The SJVA Strings program offers strings classes to students in grades 3-12. We base our program on All for Strings book series including its theory work books, scale and technique methods, well as Suzuki method books, which provides a comprehensive structure for our students in all levels. In addition to all the books, all the students experience learning and performing repertoire from baroque, classical and romantic period, film music including Disney, and much more in different settings and ensembles such as strings duet, trio and quartet, strings orchestra, strings ensemble in collaboration with other clubs, and SJVA Symphonic Orchestra. Within all this different method books and different repertoire, students develop the skills necessary to succeed in learning proper technique, ear training and theory, music history, musicality and musicianship. SJVA Strings program is a professional and complete program that develops young talented students to be great, knowledgeable, and well rounded musicians.
