MusicWorks! is an El-Sistema based program whose primary goal is to empower children to achieve their full potential through the study and performance of music. Students (grades 2-6) will learn an instrument from the string family and perform as a string orchestra and in smaller string ensembles. Students will get a variety of instruction daily (individual and group string instruction, chorus, music theory, and music history). Classes meet Monday through Thursday from 4:00- 5:30. Instruments are provided for free in this program, and income based scholarships are available. (Before and after care with homework assistance available between 3 to 6pm).
