ELEMENTARY 


Strings Program — MLS offers strings instruction (violin) to our elementary students as a co-curricular program during the school day for students in the 1st-4th grades. These lessons take the form of individual or group lessons depending upon interest, age, skill and instructors. MLS partners with Overture School of Music to accomplish this task. The only cost to the parent is the rental of the violin and the purchase of a music book (to be selected by the teacher). The lessons and instruction are covered by your tuition. Lessons are scheduled during convenient times, often during a lunch or recess, or a free period to minimize lost class time during core courses. Typically, lessons are weekly.

Our families that have participated in the strings program and orchestra in the past at MLS have used Lisle Violin Shop (https://violins.com) or Gold's Violin Shop (713-253-4239) for the rental of an instrument.
