ASYO Preparatory Strings

ASYO’s youngest ensemble

Tuition: $90/Spring 2021

Alejandra Attebury, Conductor

Preparatory Strings focuses on developing skillful music reading ability, including fluid note recognition, rhythmic coordination, and basic instrumental technique. Young musicians build foundational skills necessary to play a broader variety of repertoire.  Students do not need to audition to join this ensemble.

Rehearsals are held weekly on Monday afternoons (through the academic year) from 5:00-6:00 p.m. at the Amarillo College Music Building, Washington campus. For specifics, please view the 2020-2021 Preparatory Strings Rehearsal Schedule.

To meet the Amarillo College COVID-19 protocol, rehearsal times have been reduced to a 1-hour string orchestra rehearsal with conductor, Alejandra Attebury, and ASYO coaching staff.

Participating students must have at least one semester of experience with a school string ensemble and are expected to be active in the school music program that complements the student’s instrumental focus in ASYO. We wish to enhance, not replace, school programs. Please view the Required Signatures form.
