CCM West Side String Program
The Concord Conservatory of Musicís West Side String Program (WSSP) is a blend of Suzuki philosophy and traditional string pedagogy.
Shinichi Suzukiís philosophy embraces the idea that all children are born with a musical ability that can be nurtured at an early age through their environment, listening, imitation, and by working closely with a parent at home.
The traditional string pedagogy enhances these approaches by incorporating the development of technique and musicianship through scales, etudes, music reading, and a variety of repertoire.
Our faculty members bring their own experiences to the program as they work together in creating a solid foundation and inspiring environment for our young string players.
This approach assures teaching tailored to the needs of the individual student, with a strong emphasis on building confident solo performing, fluent music reading, and skillful ensemble participation.
Students will study a range of music in this program.
West Side String Program students attend individual instruction and a group lesson each week.
Older students are welcome to join the strings program.
Parent participation is required.
WSSP students progress through the program with their peers, participating in groups and later join ensembles or pursue studies in the fiddling track.
GROUP: Students play their shared repertoire in a motivating social environment that reinforces work done in lessons; they also hear pieces soon to be studied.
Additionally, opportunities to play solos in class help students gain confidence as performers.
Concerts and community events throughout the year bring students of all levels and ages together.
