The strings program at Christian Heritage is committed to providing students a variety of musical experiences through individual and group playing opportunities. All students in the strong program are instructed in the basics of musicianship-that is intonation, note-reading, note-writing---as well as the general discipline of what it means to be a member of an orchestral ensemble. Instructional repertoire includes, but is not limited to, the following string-methods series: Strictly Strings, Suzuki, Essential Elements, and Muller-Rusch. In addition, hymns and other classical, sacred, and contemporary literature are used throughout the year, implying both unison and harmony playing. Students are given the opportunity to participate, both within a group and individually, in various strings/orchestral competitions through the TMEA (Texas Music Educators Association) and TAPPS (Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools) programs. In addition, non-competitive performance opportunities are offered throughout the year in the form of school/community concerts.
