The Northern Door YMCA and Midsummer's Music are introducing classical music to grades 3-8 again this year. The program has two components, both taught by the Griffon String Quartet. Group lessons are available beginning in the fall and private instruction can also be arranged. Northern Door Y Executive Director Tyler Powell says the first year was a smashing success.
The strings section of an orchestra is traditionally the violin, viola, cello and bass with each instrument providing a different range of notes. Instruction is available for all instruments except bass. The program hopes to prove the old Sinatra tune correct. Life's a wonderful thing as long as you've got that string.
