Playing in an ensemble with other strings is essential for students to focus on sound production, sight-reading, tuning, rhythm while building confidence. Young players develop their bow technique, expression and dynamics in a fun group experience through a variety of beginner string ensemble repertoire. 

This beginner string ensemble is appropriate for students who have had at least one year of lessons. Students should be able to play and understand the notation for a one octave D major scale. Please speak with your teacher to see if this ensemble is right for you. Students who are not attending lessons at BKCM please contact the CMS Administrative team at to set up a placement interview.
