Who can join the COA?

Students who already play or would like to learn how to play a stringed instrument are welcome to become a member of the COA.

 

We offer instruction on violin, viola, cello, and double bass to children as young as

5 years old. We also teach students who already play a stringed instrument but who would like to learn another instrument. (Many students play both violin and viola while others play both cello and bass, for example.)
