MANCHESTER — Strings for Kids lessons for 2020-21 begin the week of Sept. 14 and end May 17. The fall and winter terms each consist of 11 private lessons, the spring term has four, and the students will have the opportunity to participate in recitals throughout the school year.

Taconic Music launched its SFK program in January 2017 with the goal of offering afterschool violin, viola, and cello instruction for area children ages 5-18 of all levels, and provide financial aid to students who otherwise might not be able to afford lessons.

All teachers are professionally trained musicians with extensive teaching and performing experience: Deanna Baasch (violin), Vesela French (violin and viola), Joana Genova (violin), Ariel Rudiakov (viola), Fran ois S cordel, (violin) and Jared Shapiro (cello).

Due to COVID-19 health guidelines, the current year's protocol will be to have teachers and parents determine their preference for virtual or in-person lessons, with the latter involving extra safety precautions.

Taconic Music is a nonprofit organization that provides Southern Vermont communities with year-round concerts, lessons, demonstrations, and educational programs built upon the rich traditions of classical music.
