Tuesday, December 4, 2012 - 2:12 pm

POTSDAM -- The National String Project at the Crane School of Music wants students in the community who are interested in playing violin, viola, cello, or bass to register for spring term classes that begin Jan. 28 at Crane.

They seek students in grades 3 through 8, or ages 8 to 13.

A guardian must be present during every lesson.

The classes are for beginning string students and for students who now study violin, viola, or bass and are interested in additional playing opportunities through orchestra and lessons. Beginning instruction is available for viola, cello, and bass.

If enrollment is high enough, a waiting list will be created.

The classes are on Mondays and Wednesdays between 4 and 6 p.m. Specific class days and times will be announced once enrollment is closed.

The National String Project’s mission is to expand string education opportunities in the North Country while providing teaching experience for Crane teacher candidates.

The project is part of a national consortium of string projects founded in collaboration with the American String Teachers Association, now serving 44 sites around the nation.

To apply, contact Nancy Conley (conleyns@potsdam.edu) or Jennifer Kessler (kesslejk@potsdam.edu) by Dec. 28.
