Look into Laurier

Join us at Laurier

Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


All students enrolled in the Laurier String Academy will participate in a weekly private and group lesson. Lessons are offered during the fall and winter semesters, and the  spring semester following the public school schedule. Initial private lessons begin with the establishment of the basic violin or cello setup which sets the foundation for all successful future violin or cello study. The Suzuki repertoire is used, supplemented early on by additional folk songs, fiddle tunes, classical concerti and dances.

Group classes include ensemble playing, ear training, solo performance and theory instruction. The group setting provides a positive learning environment and brings children together who share the same interests.


Each course runs for 35 weeks. Term One starts Sept. 5 and ends Dec. 17, 2017. Term Two starts Jan. 2 and ends May 27, 2017. There are no lessons during March Break. All courses are held in the John Aird Centre at Laurier’s Faculty of Music.
