Program Overview

Per aspera ad astra is a Latin phrase which literally means, "through hardships to the stars,” can fully be ascertained in our strings program. My vision is to transform the difficult task of playing string instruments into an enjoyable responsibility and experience. Playing string instruments and being a part of an ensemble requires mental and physical disciplines just as strenuous as those exhibited by an athlete. Students must understand this and develop a deep commitment not only to the study of music, but also to the importance of an instilled work ethic and practice schedule.
