There's no catch. 

String Sprouts is funded completely — including materials, instruments, and instruction — by generous donors.

String Sprouts is for pre-K students, so 5-year-olds can be in the program as long as they’re NOT entering Kindergarten in the fall.

As long as your child will be 3 years old by April 1, you’re good to go.

String Sprouts applications are collected in late spring; notifications of acceptance into the program occurs during the summer.

Please note that classes are limited, so we enroll on a first-come first-served basis, while factoring in family income and location.

Check registration status

We prioritize older kids so they don’t miss out. If you didn’t get into a String Sprouts class and are still of age, we’ll notify you first about next year’s enrollments!

If you don't want to wait, you might look into Omaha Conservatory of Music Growing Roots group classes, which accept registrations throughout the fall.
