Creekside Strings is an active musical community that encourages kids and parents to participate. The relationships that grow through musical and non-musical connections gently weave music into the fabric of the student’s life. Developed by Duane Whitcomb, the focus of Creekside Strings is learning to play with other people. Families and friends gathers each week for music, food and fun. As a result, kids are exposed to more advanced players, they play more music, they become more skilled, all the while being exposed to new music.
