Registration is now open for the 2021-2022 Strings Program!

HWDSB Elementary Strings Instruction Program

Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board’s Strings Instruction Program is offered through 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) 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.

Again in 2021-2022 the program will be offered in a fully on-line format.  Lessons are now 45 minutes in length and there are 24 lessons this year, 40 additional minutes of instruction than prior years.  Participating students are loaned an instrument for no additional charge and receive a music book as part of the program.
