North West Strings Program
North West Christian School offer a Strings program available to all students. Primary and Secondary levels are accommodated separately. All levels of string playing are nurtured, and the development of musical abilities are encouraged to their highest level.
The combination of weekly private tuition, ensemble practice, and music class provide a unique opportunity for students to flourish musically. The experience is challenging and exciting. Music performance, theory, aural and ensemble skills are all studied, alongside concerts and external exams. Children will gradually master each step required to ensure a solid musical foundation. They are expected to show a commitment to their string study by consistent practise at home. Students are selected for the North West Christian Strings or Ensemble as they reach an appropriate standard. Both ensembles perform regularly.
