Parents or Guardians registering for their child must create a Family Account. See registration instructions.
The University of Windsor Lab School: Strings offers music instruction for students ages 4 to 17 who wish to study the violin, viola, or cello through a curriculum that includes group class instruction, theory and master classes, chamber music, and performance opportunities at the University of Windsor’s School of Creative Arts. Instruction is based on the pedagogical philosophies of Mimi Zweig, Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, Paul Rolland, and Ivan Galamian, and will include diverse repertoire and styles.
String Academy students participate in 18 group lessons throughout the year and will engage with leading pedagogues associated with the University of Windsor. The classes are 60 minutes in length and are structured to develop technical/musical skills, ensemble and ear training, concert etiquette, and participation in master class performance experiences, all of which encourage social interactions with their peers. As part of the WSA curriculum, students will have the opportunity to perform in one recital (in June) in the University of Windsor School of Creative Arts Recital Hall.
In the early stages of music study, students establish the technical/musical foundation on which all future artistry develops. In addition, students become engaged in their learning, set personal goals, acquire an increased sense of self-efficacy, and develop lasting friendships with peers who share similar interests. In essence, a priority of the University of Windsor Lab School: Strings is to nurture the overall well-being of every student.
The concert will be held during the last class on June 10 from 2:00pm-3:30pm. Final details will be provided at a later date.
