For centuries, string sections have brought masterpieces from the great composers to life. Modern orchestras pack orchestra halls to celebrate everything from Bach to Tchaikovsky while also providing soundtracks to Broadway musicals and motion pictures. When rock bands like Metallica and Guns n’ Roses want to reinvent their biggest hits, they call in the strings. If you’re just starting out in a school orchestra or want to play professionally, there is no limit to the places your skills can take you; your journey can begin at West Side Music Academy. We help students of all ages and skill levels to perfect their craft, expand their skills and perform with excellence.
