HIGH MOUNTAIN STRINGS
High Mountain Strings is a program for the development of strings players in our local elementary and middle school. Based on providing instruction for beginner and intermediate students, the program began in February 2016, and now has 20 students enjoying violin lessons. The grant from MDEF allowed the program to provide scholarship opportunities for students who might otherwise not have been able to join the program. The outstanding teacher, Jonelle Darrow, travels to McCall weekly and teaches using the traditional approach while incorporating elements of the Suzuki method. The High Mountain Strings have played on several occasions at school assemblies and have performed at the Music Society’s Christmas program for the community. These performances provided a sense of excitement, challenge and pride for the young violinists and parents alike!
