With instruction in dulcimer, autoharp, mandolin, banjo, ukulele, violin, viola, and cello the CVMA string department is uniquely qualified to provide one-on-one attention and care to each student, no matter their age or experience.
For school-age children, we offer private instruction and preparation for school orchestra and ensembles. For students, hobbyists, professionals or community musicians, we provide instruction in technique, styling and musicianship in many different genres.
Our string instructors are seasoned performers and enthusiastic educators with advanced  degrees and who are busy, performing musicians in Twin Cities’ orchestras and ensemble communities.
Please take some time to visit their profiles, media  and web pages and feel free to contact them directly.
