Events & Programing

This school year our programing includes in-person and virtual private lesson with our quality staff,  and virtual group learning opportunities that we call “String Thing Hangouts”.  These monthly workshops (Hangouts) are an opportunity for our students to interact, build community, and enjoy the music learning journey together.

String Thing Hangouts

Monthly hangouts hosted by staff members Becky and Beth will be held on the 3rd Friday of the month. (Scroll down for schedule) Currently two levels are being offered:

  • Beginning students (Suzuki Book 1 or earlier)
  • Intermediate/Advanced Students

This programing is available for all current NWS students and also to other interested students and community members.

Join our Hangouts: You can get in on the fun too! All ages are welcome! The cost to participate in the Hangout is $30/semester, $60/school year, or $10/session. Payment information is included on the registration form.  Payments can be made through PayPal on our “Donate” page or by check: made payable and mailed to NorthWoods Strings PO Box 13081, Hayward, WI 54843.
