Strings major offered at Cab

Cab Calloway will be offering strings as a major this year in both middle and high school. Ms. Ayers will be team-teaching with two graduate students from the University of Delaware who are certified music educators and strings players. The HS strings class will be comprised of both Cab and Charter students. Any student interested should contact the school to request a schedule change. We will be working collaboratively with the University of Delaware, the Calloway Fund Board, and Red Clay to expand this program in the coming years. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive orchestra program at Cab Calloway School of the Arts!

In addition to offering strings as a major, the following programs will be offered after school for grades 9-12.

After School Programs
  • String Quartet program for advanced string students (Grades 9-12)
  • Strings class for intermediate level (Grades 9-12)

We may also be able to provide an after school strings class forinterested middle school students based on interest and participation.

Middle school students currently enrolled have 3 options:

  1. Take strings as a major and a minor (you would have strings 5 days a week).
  2. Take strings as a major with a different minor (you would have strings 3 days a week).
  3. Take strings as a minor with a different major (you would have strings 2 days a week). This is where all previous students are currently enrolled.

If you have not already done so, please contact Dr. Hocking and let him know which option you prefer. Expansion of the major in the middle school grades for this school year will be based on interest of students.
