Mountain School of Strings

Mountain School of Strings is a non-profit music organization committed to providing affordable after-school strings classes for all who are interested. Our curriculum challenges students to play music from classical to traditional mountain tunes. Research indicates that music education gives students an edge when it comes to self-esteem, personal motivation and even academic success. We reach out to students at Transylvania County elementary schools and also teach at our own Brevard Music Center studio.  With funding from Lake Toxaway Charities, we can ensure our programs continue.
