We are back with String-On

in the elementary schools!

GIYO’s fifth-grade outreach program, focuses on learning to play classical music on an orchestra string.  Science concepts, such as sound velocity, vibration, pitch, wave, frequency, the Doppler Effect, amplitude and sound pressure, are taught as part of this ears-on and hands-on program. The program is directed by a professional strings teacher.

String-On, our week-long introduction to instrumental music, has been to Oglethorpe Point and Burroughs-Molette this Fall! We have also introduced 5th graders at St Francis Xavier through a hybrid String-On. We are currently scheduling String-On for the spring semester.


String-On is supported by our donors and from grants from
The Terry Thomas Foundation, Rotary Club SSI, OREM Foundation, 
The Kay Cantrell Family Fund and John N. Goddard Foundation.
