Now in our 26th year of operation, the FCTE Saturday Morning Program offers weekly classes in violin, viola, cello, bass, classical guitar and harp. This program also offers three levels of orchestra, chamber music groups, regular recitals, coaching with accompanists, and an annual string workshop.
Based on the Suzuki pedagogical approach to teaching and learning, students from this program have distinguished themselves at many levels in Conservatory examinations, music festivals, and the Canadian Music Competition, and a number of them have gone on to professional carreers in music.
Our faculty includes over thirty instructors, coaches, accompanists, and conductors. Students range in age from 4 to 18 years, all of whom study with a private teacher during the week.
