Following the success of the 2020 spring strings lessons for youth, the Door County YMCA – in collaboration with the Griffon String Quartet and Midsummer’s Music – will again offer an excellent opportunity for area youth to learn to play string instruments.
This program is for children in grades three through 12 who are interested in learning the basics of violin, viola or cello from the Griffon String Quartet in an online, small-group format. The virtual classes will be held Mondays, 5:30-7 pm, until Dec. 28. The YMCA members’ rate is $190; the community rate is $250.
Private lessons will also be offered. The YMCA members’ rate is $160 for eight 30-minute private sessions or $320 for eight 60-minute private sessions. The community rate is $240 for eight 30-minute private lessons or $440 for eight 60-minute private lessons.
All participants must supply their own instruments, which can be rented through Heid Music. Violin and viola rentals are $13 per month; cello rentals are $31 per month.
