Each string professor leads a weekly instrumental studio class. These classes are in addition to the lessons and string forum.
During the studio classes, students of each instrument gather to play for each other, work on technique, scales and etudes, and discuss problems and discoveries.
In addition, the classes develop special projects. The violins have created YouTube projects. The violas have mounted Viola Day events performing viola ensembles. The cellos rehearse a Cello Choir which gives yearly concerts.
