Mozart Strings Project

Beginning and Intermediate
String Instruction
Violin, Viola, Cello, and Bass!

The Mozart Strings Project offers after-school beginning string instruction to elementary school students. The project started in 1994 in response to an increasing number of requests for orchestral training. Mozart Strings is a program offered by the Colorado Springs Youth Symphony and is open to all students, regardless of school district.

Students enrolled in the project attend two one-hour rehearsals each week and perform at least three concerts each year. Elementary Mozart students come together to perform en masse at concerts.

MSP has been designed to maximize the potential for success for each participant. The objective is to teach carefully, accurately and frequently, thereby insuring the mastery of performance skills that will lead to a lifetime of enjoyment and appreciation. We can't wait to share the benefits with your child.
