Cedar Falls,  IA,  50614

The School, founded by Martha Holvik, offers individual and group lessons in violin, viola, cello, string bass, harp and flute based on the Suzuki philosophy to 190 northeast Iowa students ages 3 to 18. In addition, the school includes a parent string class, several levels of theory classes, small ensemble sessions, and participation with visiting artists to the university community. The School provides annual individual and group recitals and outreach performance opportunities; it also sponsors an advanced violin performance group “Fiddlesticks”, the Northern Iowa Junior Orchestra (area string students in grades 6-8) and the Northern Iowa Youth Orchestra (area string students in grades 9-12). The School is part of a collaborative effort with Center City Arts in neighboring Waterloo, Iowa to bring quality violin, viola, flute and cello instruction to students in the urban neighborhood. This project, funded by Center City Arts and the Community Foundation of Waterloo and Northeast Iowa, is called MusicWorks and provides year-round scholarships to these youths.
