YONA has officially begun our second year! While last year we had 20 students learning violin with us, this year we have expanded to 40 students in grades 2, 3, and 4, learning violin, viola, cello, and bass.
Our first couple of weeks back have been spent getting to know our new students and introducing them to their instruments. On the second day of YONA, we invited the families of all 40 of our students to join us for a paper instrument making session in the school gym. Our returners and their families shared their paper instrument expertise with the newbies, helping them construct and decorate their cardboard violas, cellos, and yes, even basses!
Check out our video of the day, and stay tuned for more updates on YONA 2014-2015!
