Strings


David Cho Strings, LLC

Welcome to the David Cho Strings Program

Enrollment is open now.

It is my privilege to join your wonderful community and share the art of playing an instrument from the string family. Playing violin, viola, or cello is one of the most direct ways of sharing the greatest music ever composed. The canon of great classical music gives both performers and listeners a relevant experience to all school subjects studied. String players in particular join a rich tradition of hundreds of years of music making. Learning stringed instruments solidifies our knowledge of history and the time period in which a piece was composed, while teaching us a new language. We are uplifted by the famous composer J.S. Bach, who summarized the spiritual elements of music by saying, “I play the notes as they are written, but it is God who makes the music.”

I look forward to serving your sons and daughters for years to come and I welcome your questions at:

Very Sincerely Yours,

Mr. David Cho
