Begining Strings Training

Youth  from age 3 can join us to begin to experience the joy of music at the South Florida Youth Symphony . Classes are held on Sunday Afternoons, with classes hourly  from 1:00-5:00 depending on enrollment. Students are able to choose violin, viola, cello or bass as their instrument to aid in the development of their tools for success in life; concentration, self esteem, pride in accomplishment, dedication to a group and the group cause. Parent participation with the teacher and child is required in this class development, and as the child moves through the levels, the parent student relationship grows and blossoms. Advancing classes  regularly join in with the 1st level orchestra form performances.

Every Child Can!!!! With Music, The Language of the Heart.
