• Welcome HPE String Students and Families!
    music staff  
  • I am so excited to be teaching you how to play a stringed instrument! It is going to require some effort, but your hard work is going to pay off! Lessons will begin towards the end of September. Stay tuned for more information regarding the Beginning Band and Orchestra Parent Night.

    Beginning in 3rd grade, students are invited to take string lessons on violin, viola, cello, or bass. After the first year of lessons, students will be invited to participate in the Concertino Strings ensemble, which rehearses at the Middle School in the morning before the HPE school day begin.

    I am looking forward to having fun and making music with you!

    - Mr. Magagnoli

Violin/Viola Posture
Cello should be positioned over your left shoulder, with the peg slightly touching your left ear
