In conjunction with the San Luis Obispo Symphony and the San Luis Coastal Unified School district, I amÂ pleasedÂ to offer a new violin class in Morro Bay. It’s anÂ exciting opportunity for all central coast violin students in grades 3-6. Classes will meet :
Tuesday afternoons from 2:30 p.m. to 3:20 p.m. at Del Mar Elementary School, beginning on October 7.
Though the class is designedÂ for beginners, it is also great for students who have played in the past but would like a refresher.
I created a 3 minute video for potential students, which mayÂ be viewed below. Also visit this page for registration information.
Instrument Check Out Day – Saturday Sept. 27.
The San Luis Obispo Symphony Strings in the Schools program has a limited number of low cost rental violins.Â Due to large demand, the Symphony is unable to accommodate all Strings in the Schools students with instruments.Â We highly recommendÂ using the online options such asÂ Shar MusicÂ orAntonio ViolinÂ with rentals beginning at just $15 a month.
Contact the Symphony’sÂ Music Education Director, Â Andrea Castillo for additional information about registration and instrument rentals: Â (805) 543-3533, Ext. #583Â firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a $375 tuition fee, which covers the entire year of instruction. Â The Symphony is offering some scholarships for families in need of assistance. An application is available below:
