Conservatory Players is a reading string orchestra program intended for students ages 7 - 11. If your student is a complete beginner, check out our Growing Roots program for beginning string players!
Allegro is for string players who have some experience on their instrument and (violin, viola, cello, bass) are playing at a Suzuki Book 1A Level (or equivalent). This class is perfect for Sprouts and Growing Roots Graduates. To register, a short video of the student playing their instrument is required.
Brio is for string players who have already participated in at least one year of Conservatory Players, and are ready for the next level! Prerequisite playing level is Suzuki Book 1B-3+, with the ability to read first-position notes on all strings and basic rhythms. A placement video and teacher recommendation is required for Brio.
Students in both levels will learn basic ensemble skills, like following a conductor and playing together as well as strengthening their note reading ability! This ensemble will be featured in concert performances throughout the year.
PLEASE NOTE: This group requires a placement video. When you apply, we will contact you about submitting a video.
