Third Grade Violin Program
The Decatur City Schools System and The Symphony School of the
Huntsville Symphony Orchestra is pleased to offer the Third Grade
Violin Program. Our program provides ten free introductory lessons
to every third grader in our school system. The lessons, taught
by artist-faculty from The Symphony School, use a curriculum based
on the highly successful Suzuki Violin Method which begins with
the premise that every child can learn.
The Third Grade Violin Program has received attention throughout
the region and is the model for similar programs elsewhere. The
program received a Notable Award for Education
from the American Symphony Orchestra League, and was featured at
the national conference in June 2001 in Seattle, Washington.
