The Weathersfield Strings program is a parent paid program presented through the cooperative efforts of the Arts Council of the Conejo Valley, CVUSD and the Conejo Recreation & Park District. Instrumental music can enhance your child's educational experience through creative self-esteem, emotional release and satisfaction, discipline of achievements, cooperating and performing with fellow students.
The Strings Program is for students who wish to learn to play violin, viola, or cello. Students will be taught to play their instruments, read music, and perform together with other student musicians. Usually all students have the opportunity to perform in the Fred Kavli Theatre at the Civic Arts Plaza in May as a part of the All District Strings Festival. Hopefully, we can get back to that when the Covid public gathering restrictions are lifted.
