Beginning Strings Conservatory


In 1997, with the reduction of string instrumental programs in our public schools, the Beginning Strings Conservatory was formed to offer elementary school students the opportunity to explore the violin in weekly group lessons.

This Educational Outreach Program provides string teachers to schools, covering all three school districts across the Coachella Valley, with plans to expand the program within the various desert communities. As a result, the lives of our students are enriched by promoting creativity, aesthetic awareness, and cultural growth.

The Coachella Valley Symphony awards scholarships each season to assist these young musicians with private study. Students who have completed a minimum of two years in the Beginning Strings Conservatory are eligible to audition for the Buddy Rogers Youth Symphony.
