Ivories and Bows is our program for young musicians who play piano, violin, viola, cello, or bass.
Jennifer Perkins, Director of our Camerata and Chamber Strings programs, builds a fun, supportive environment where students feel safe exploring their craft in new and exciting ways. By focusing on the collaborative elements of performance, students are encouraged to step outside their comfort zones in mixed duos and trios, growing their musicianship while building fundamental creative skills for life.
Ivories & Bows is the perfect program for beginner students with 1-3 years of experience. An easy skills assessment video will be required upon registration.
