12-Week After-School Strings Class For Kindergarten Through 5th Grade Students

The 12-Week After-School Strings Class for Kindergarten through 5th grade students is designed to give school students an extra-curricular music activity, expose them to the orchestral string instruments,  and  better prepare them to participate in a vast array of string ensemble and orchestra programs throughout Henderson County. Students can choose to study the violin, viola, or cello.  Please register HERE.

Steps In Preparing For The After-School Strings Program

  1. Complete the registration form HERE, select the desired class day, choose which instrument your child is interested in learning (violin, viola, or cello), and pay the tuition.  All tuition payments are processed through PayPal.  Your registration is not complete until payment is received.  You can use your PayPal account or any debit or credit card if you do not have a PayPal account.
  2. Visit Tempo Music Center, in downtown Hendersonville, North Carolina and purchase the following items prior to the first class:
    1. Essential Elements, Book 1 for the instrument of choice (violin, viola, or cello)
    2. A shoulder rest for violin and viola or a rockstop for cello.
    3. Immaculata Catholic School & Veritas Christian Academy students will also need to purchase a portable (wired) music stand to bring to each class at their school.  Students registered for the strings class at the Music Academy will not need to purchase a music stand.
  3. If you need to rent an instrument for the duration of the 12-week  class, please see Lillian Hall at Tempo Music Center for rental information and pricing.  Please do not purchase a colorful plastic instrument or purchase from Amazon. No matter how inexpensive or pretty it is it will not tune or play well and you may end up having to spend much more.
  4. Please bring your instrument, bow, shoulder rest or rockstop, Essential Elements Book 1, and music stand (Immaculata & Veritas students only) to each class.
