The strings program at Holy Cross Academy began in Fall of 2017 and currently has three classes of enthusiastic beginners.  Mr. Drew Robertson is an experienced violinist, violist, and Suzuki-trained teacher who employs a fun blend of Suzuki Method instruction, fiddling, seasonal tunes, and hilarious musical games to make every class exciting!

During the first year, students focus on how to hold their instrument, create a fantastic tone, perform as a group ensemble, and master foundational pieces from Suzuki Book 1.  The strings program at Holy Cross Academy is a great way to begin playing a string instrument!

Listen in! 

Here are some of the great pieces we played during the 2017-18 school year!
