HWDSB Elementary Strings Instruction Program

Strings Logo


The Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board Strings Instruction Program is offered through Community and Continuing Education. The Strings Program provides an opportunity for HWDSB students in grades 4 to 8 to learn to play violin or cello. This program is a fee-for-service program and fees are payable at the time of registration.

The elementary Strings program is a great place for HWDSB students to start if they are considering participating in the Secondary Strings programs at Glendale (available to all HWDSB Secondary School students), Delta or Westdale. Parents have a variety of options for enrolment for their children.  These lesson options can also be complemented by registering for Orchestra as well.
