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.
Students receive 35 private lessons and 30 groups lessons.
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.
