String education begins in the third grade in the Little Silver Schools. All students receive instruction on the violin in their general music class. Upon entering 4th grade, students have the option to play violin, viola, or cello and receive one pull-out lesson every six days. At the middle school level, students continue their string education by participating in the string orchestra ninth period and continue to receive one pull-out lesson every six days.
