The string ensemble is an enhancement class available for all string instrument students who want to join our string ensemble. These classes are open to ASOM students and outside students who are interested in playing and performing in a group. Outside students must audition to be placed into a suitable string ensemble. Students playing in a group setting develop greater musical skills in note reading, sight reading and learning various melodies and harmonies within the pieces. The string ensemble class helps to motivate children to practice and also stresses the importance of listening, not just to your own playing, but to those around you.
