If your children want to learn to play one of the string instruments–violin, viola, cello, bass–we have an excellent opportunity in Washington County to get our kids started early. Fossil Ridge, Lava Ridge, Sunrise Ridge & Tonaquint Intermediate Schools and Hurricane Elementary all offer programs called “Early Morning Strings”. The program is aptly named as the classes begin at 7:00 am.
The instruction is free. All you need to do is contact one of the early morning teachers, sign up and find an instrument. As a general rule, early morning strings is offered to 4th and 5th graders, but talk to the individual teacher. We have seen kids younger tha 4th grade participate, and in our own family, we have had a child love it so much that he opted to do both early morning and regular school day orchestra in order to learn a second instrument.
The ensembles perform in recitals a couple of times throughout the year. The instruction is quality and quite personalized as only the dedicated few (students and parents) make it to the early morning class. This is a hidden jewel in our community.
Of course, you are responsible for their transportation to and from the class.
