Newton County Youth Strings

Newton County Youth Strings 

The Newton County Youth Strings program specializes in the Suzuki method of teaching, which is based on the principle that all children possess the ability to play an instrument. This musical ability is developed and enhanced through a nurturing environment and with the encouragement of both parents and teachers as a team. Private lessons in violin, viola, and cello begin at age 4.  Lessons are held at Porter Performing Arts Center (140 Ram Drive, Covington, GA).
