Q. What level should I write down for my son/daughter?

A. What we would like is for the teachers to recommend a level and then let us know what group to put each string player into. Then we will assign groups and let you know.

Q. Should I download the music?

A.  Yes.  Practicing before the event is really important - it will make the experience of string day much more meaningful. 

Q. Can you tell me the approximate age level for each group (Beginning and Intermediate in particular).

A. Ages aren't as relevant as levels of ability. 

Q. Can I show up on the day without pre-registering?

A. Yes - but bring your own lunch.  Plus make sure you have your teacher recommend a level and look at the music before you show up.
