Participants must be able to play a one-octave D scale and read notes within the staff.

The second track is “String Ensemble.” It will meet on Thursdays from 10:45 to 11:45 a.m. on July 26, August 2, August 9, and August 16. This is designed for advanced beginner to intermediate players of all ages. It will involve fun tunes for orchestra in arrangements for violin, viola, cello, and bass.

All classes are held at St. Paul’s Lutheran Family Church, 1201 N. Saliman Road, Carson City. There will be a concert featuring participants on Friday, August 17, at the Carson Mall at noon.
