Enrollment Ages

Students approaching their fourth birthdays through adults are welcome to enroll.


Alamance Strings offers violin and cello lessons.

Lesson Format

Students attend both weekly private lessons and biweekly group lessons.

Lesson Schedule

Private lessons are held Monday through Friday afternoons during the hours of 1:00 pm until 7:00 pm.

Group lessons are held on Thursday afternoons.

Group Lessons

Group lessons augment, not replace, the private lesson.

Each enrolled student is assigned a group lesson section based on age and experience level.

Regular group lessons attendance is required to participate in studio events.


Most studio events are held either on Thursday evening or on Saturday.

Each year Alamance Strings holds a December Group Concert, February Winter Workshop, March Fiddle Fun Day, and May Spring Solo Recital. 

Typically there are additional smaller performance opportunities through out the year as well.


Enrollment in Alamance Strings is an annual commitment. 

Tuition rates are based on all studio activities and events over the course of the year.

Tuition may be paid by the year, school term, or by the month. 

Tuition rates start at $175 a month.


Make up lessons are not available.

Parent Involvement

Lessons within the Suzuki Method are a dynamic, vibrant relationship between the student, the parent, and the teacher. 

A designated practice parent is required to attend all lessons, group lessons, and activities with all students under the age of 14.

Instrument Size

Size and functionality are the most important features in a student instrument. 

Please wait to obtain an instrument until advised by your teacher.

Instrument Rental

Most families enjoy the benefits of renting an instrument locally.

Two local options are Artley Violins in Gibsonville and Swanson Violins in Hillsborough.

Virtual Lessons

Online lessons are available to currently enrolled students in the event of illness or inclement weather.

Enrollment solely online as a virtual student is not currently available.
