Crescendo for Strings is a program designed to encourage and motivate students and to help them set challenging goals, track progress and ensure balanced growth.
This is a year-long program, September through June for violin, viola and cello students who are enrolled in weekly private lessons at least 30 minutes in length with a MacPhail instructor (minimum eight hours per semester).
Crescendo guides students through graded levels of repertoire and technical work. It also encourages development of musical skills, motivates students by tracking and rewarding progress, develops performance skills, provides an opportunity outside of the private studio for professional feedback, and helps develop the student into a well-rounded musician.
