Los Altos School District elementary, junior high and high school students recently joined forces for the annual “Strictly Strings” concert, which offered the opportunity to envision their progress if they stick with their music instruction.
“‘Strictly Strings’ has been a big deal for about 20 years,” said John Beeman, music teacher for Los Altos School District schools. “It has made a huge difference. The elementary and junior high students get to see what they have to look forward to.”
