Adult Musicians

Music is not just for the young! It is never too late to learn a stringed instrument. We can work with you to create the best learning environment for adult musicians. With either private lessons one-on-one with an instructor, or a group lesson with other interested adults, we can make sure that you get an opportunity to create music, just like the kids!~

Adult Ensemble

Work with other adult musicians to form a small chamber group. Membership is open to any adult player who has past experience on their instrument as well as current PW String Academy adult students. -8 week program-
