For over 10 years, students have played in our orchestras and blossomed as inspired musicians in a close-knit community.
Our superb staff has had years of experience as both teachers and performers.
Our students love coming to rehearsal each week, and become engaged musicians in a musical community.
Being part of the community

Playing in an orchestra or band is often described as akin to being part of a vital community. Students learn to find their own voice, yet also work in harmony and contribute to a greater good. Countless alumni come back each year to be part of our Mentor Program.

Prepare for the future

Elemental Strings and Band has proudly supported the elementary music programs of the Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District (SMMUSD), and strives to prepare our young musicians for further musical studies in middle school and beyond.

Live performance

Nothing compares to the thrill of seeing a live performance. Our students have been the lucky recipients of invitations to attend performances by the New West Symphony, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and assorted performances by Jacaranda and at the Broad Stage.
