Application and Selection Process


Students living north of Highway 401 now have the opportunity to begin or continue their studies in String Instruments.  These instruments include the violin, viola, cello and double bass


All students seeking admission to the program must have an interview (Beginning Strings), or an audition and interview (Experienced Strings and Advanced Strings). This process ensures that students are placed at the appropriate level for their current abilities. Although a student’s program choice will be taken into consideration, the admissions committee will place each student in the appropriate stream based on their audition and prior experience.


Students must apply on the Peel Board RLCP application page where a $40.00 online non-refundable application fee is due.  


All students will receive an email confirmation from the Central Peel Strings Department that will give further instructions on how to virtually attend the interview component and where to upload the performance videos (for Experienced and Advanced players only.)


Selection Criteria

Selection will be based on a student’s middle school marks and learning skills,

and the participation component (interview for all students and uploaded performance videos for Experienced and Advanced performers.)
