    About Loma Linda Academy String Orchestra
    Loma Linda Academy has a long history of strong academics, with opportunities to excel in leadership, music, and athletics. The talented Loma Linda Academy String Orchestra is touring California this Summer.
    The Loma Linda Academy String Program is a unique offering for students at Loma Linda Academy and in the community who are interested in serious study of violin, viola, cello, and harp. Following the teaching of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, students in the program participate in both weekly private lessons and group classes appropriate to their level. All of the private teachers hold degrees in music and have taken extensive training in teaching their instruments through the SuzukiTM method.
    Additionally, they have two orchestras: LLA Concert String Orchestra (Stephanie Kime Popa, director), which is geared toward intermediate level string players as an introduction to orchestral playing; and Loma Linda Academy Sinfonia (Stephanie Kime Popa, director), a more advanced level string ensemble.
