Magic Strings

Magic Strings is an integrated music and arts experience. All students in Magic Strings receive string instruction during the school week on either violin or cello. Magic Strings began in September of 2000 with a $25,000 grant from the VH1 Save the Music Foundation. The grant provided 22 violins and 9 cellos. Parents and the community have played a vital role in acquiring additional resources. We continue to purchase instruments through the fund raising efforts directed by our parent group.

More information is available in our brochure. If you are interested in joining, please print the Magic Strings Application here, fill it out, and turn it in at your home school or send it directly to Southwood Elementary, 3240 McDougall Ave., Enumclaw, WA 98022.
