Youth Programs

Our mission is music education, and not just for the college and graduate musicians who attend the National Music Festival – we offer vibrant youth programming too!

Our youth programs currently include the Fiddlesticks! Youth Strings Program and an instrument loan program. An instrument petting zoo program for children in kindergarten through second grade, and a youth and community orchestra program are under development.

Our Programs


Fiddlesticks! offers the opportunity for Kent County children to learn to play a string instrument at no cost to their families.

Instrument Loan Program

Violins, violas and cellos are available on loan to students who need them!
