About the Hearts in Harmony String Instrument Program
In April 2018, AFBA launched a new pilot program to teach children with autism and related disabilities (and their parents) to play the violin, viola or cello. The first session was a great success! The second session is six weeks, and will run from May 7 to June 11, 2018, 6:00 - 7:00pm
The classes are open to any child on the autism spectrum or related disability. All functionalities welcome! Parents learn the instrument along with the child. Teacher-studio ratio is about 2:1.
The classes are taught by Thalea String Quartet. Children and their parents meet once a week for group class, and can also take private lessons. Part of the cost of the classes and instrument rental is subsidized by AFBA to the extent possible.
