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.
