Alia at the 2017 CCYO Summer Strings.

The Cochise County Youth Orchestra (CCYO) is now welcoming violin, viola, cello and string bass players to join in the fun next semester, which starts on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 and runs through December 6, 2017. Students from elementary to high school age who have at least one year of playing experience and are currently taking private lessons, or who pass an audition, are eligible to join the advanced class.

Tuition: $130 for entire semester. That breaks down to about $8 per each hour and a half rehearsal with professional instruction. Additional siblings who enroll pay only $90 per semester.


For those beginning students, or for the young musician who does not have quite enough playing experience to join our advanced orchestra, we offer beginning and intermediate orchestra classes. Our orchestra is strings only: violin, viola, cello, and bass. These ensembles are for students who would like to learn to play those instruments in a group setting. Students will be assisted with fitting and rental of instruments during the first beginner class meeting.

  $85 for entire semester. That breaks down to around $5 per each 45 minute class with professional instruction. Additional siblings who also enroll pay only $60 each per semester.
