Strings section

Many of the area's finest musicians play in the Walla Walla Symphony. If you're interested in taking lessons, or have questions about the music teachers who might be available to teach lessons in this area, please contact one of the musicians listed below or call us at 509-529-8020 for more information.

The Walla Walla Symphony also has a limited number of musical instruments available "free" through the symphony's Encore! Musical Instrument Lending Library. If your child needs a musical instrument and you can't afford to purchase or rent one, we might be able to help.
