Strings 150 Day Practice Club
String Students earn membership in the 150 Day Practice Club by practicing at home for a total of 150 days which is completed by the day after Spring Break. Members are rewarded with a trip to a symphony concert, last year students were treated to alive rehearsal of the Dallas Symphony.
The Kimberlin String Program is designed for 4th and 5th Grade students desiring to play violin, viola, cello, string bass, or harp. Students need no prior musical training to enroll in group classes varying in size from 10 to 30 students depending on scheduling. Lessons are provided weekly during the special activities block of the regular school day. Kimberlin Advanced Strings proudly boast of receiving the Best in Class Orchestra for 2007, 2008, 2011, 2012 at Sandy Lake Fun-fest Festival. Currently 112 students participate in the KAE orchestra program.

Awesome Orchestra Websites
The Garland Symphony - 4th Grade attends a Garland Symphony Orchestra concert each year.
The Dallas Symphony - A great source of information. See and hear every instrument; listen to examples from different composers; play music memory, music theory, and music history games.
The New York Philharmonic Orchestra - Probably the best orchestra site for children on the internet today. (Many games, viewing, and listening opportunities)
