Amici String Program

The Amici String Program was founded in 2007 by Fiona Carnie and Theresa Plotnick. Their goal was to provide a setting for young string players to grow in a positive and nurturing environment.

The Amici String Program was developed to:

  • Provide a positive and inclusive atmosphere for string students to develop their skills, their love of music, and their friendships.
  • Provide quality musical education in a non-judgmental environment, where all students, parents, and instructors are treated respectfully and equitably.
  • Provide opportunities for students to fulfill their full potential, both musically and personally.
  • Provide opportunities for students to interact with the community through music.
