Tuesdays, 9-11 a.m.

The New Horizons Beginning (Green) Strings is a program designed for adults who are either new to violin, viola, cello, or bass, or wish to brush up on their technical, musical, or ensemble skills.  Sessions are in a class/lab format and address a variety of topics, including music-reading, rhythm skills, string technique, ensemble playing, and practice following a conductor.  Participants are encouraged to share their questions, as well as their successes and struggles in practicing to each class meeting, as participants have much to learn from each other.  Repertoire studied will consist of common tunes, ensemble arrangements, technical exercises, and rhythm-reading exercises.
