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.

There are three Crescendo for Strings juries and Gala/Award Ceremonies each school year. Violin, viola and cello students who take lessons at MacPhail may participate.

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.

All Levels: $115 per year
