Meeting for prospective beginning strings students and parents will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 4 in the Growing Room. Students in grades 2-6 are eligible.

Melissa Robinson, TNSM’s music teacher and orchestra leader will discuss the strings program and answer any questions the parents may have. Students may choose violin, viola, cello, or bass. We are thrilled to have Melissa Robinson, former NKU director of strings, leading our orchestra program.

A representative from the Baroque Violin Shop will be present to handle  instrument rental.  Students should attend the meeting with their parents so that they can be measured for the correctly-sized instrument.
Call or email Melissa Robinson if you have questions.
