KidStrings Box
Why do I need KidStrings Box?

If you’ve ever racked your brain trying to figure out how to get your child to practice (or more than they are)…enter KidStrings Box. Each month’s music and lessons have been carefully crafted by a team of educators (and parents!) who understand how to motivate and inspire, but have fun doing it.

We are the one-stop-shop for a fun way to learn how to practice and actually enjoy doing it. What’s not to love about that?

What age is the box recommended for?

This box is designed for the string musician who has been studying their instrument for three years or less, ideally ages 8-17! We make every effort to customize each box with the needs of each of our subscribers. Have a request or suggestion, send us an email!

What should we expect in our bi-monthly box?

Each box has a theme: for example, Berlioz and his Symphonie fantastique. We include that month’s music, specially arranged to correspond with what they are learning in school and lessons. Along with that, they will learn fun facts about the music and the composer, as well as a tiered lesson that meets your musician at their skill and ability level. In addition, we include 2-3 accessories for their specific instrument, 1-2 fun items related to the theme to use right off the bat, and a surprise or two to show off at school and with friends.

When can we expect to get our box?

As soon as you subscribe, your first payment will draft, and within 5-7 business days you will receive a Welcome Box that includes a binder and the basics your child will need for subsequent boxes.

After that, your payment will draft on the 15th of every other month, and we ship all boxes by the 1st of the following month.

So if you sign up on May 5, you’ll be charged for the Welcome Box and it immediately goes in the mail to you. On May 15th you’ll be charged for the June box, which will arrive around the beginning of the month. Then the process starts all over again on July 15th for the August box.

If you sign up for a pre-paid plan, the above holds true but you will only be billed once at the time of your checkout.

Is there a commitment or can we cancel at any time?

No commitment. If you need to cancel your subscription, please log into your account on this website and cancel. Note, cancellation requests must be received 14 days before your billing date (by the 1st of the billing month), or you will be charged for the next box on the 15th.

My child just got/is getting a violin for Christmas/Birthday. Is this appropriate for them?

First off, Congratulations to your child for choosing such an awesome instrument! Yes, this box will work well to motivate your child, teach them all about their instrument, and help educate them on the string music repertoire. Each lesson has three levels, so it works for beginners who have never played, on up to those who have been playing for a while!

Can siblings use the same box?

YES! This is a big change for us, requested by popular demand. When you checkout, for just $20 you can add a sibling (and their instrument). They will receive the same items in the box, except for the book.

So I guess this means I don't need to pay a private teacher?

No, not at all. If your child takes lessons currently, they will be able to use the tips and techniques right away, and if all goes like it should, the learning will actually accelerate. If your child doesn’t have a private teacher, then you will quickly find that the educational materials we have included can be self-directed as well as work with classroom goals.

Rest assured, I am a string teacher myself, and I developed this box in consultation with other respected private teachers, classroom teachers, and education professionals from across the country.

When and where do boxes ship?

Boxes will ship on or around the beginning of every other month (June, August, October, December, February, and April) and usually deliver within 5-7 business days. Boxes going to Hawaii, Alaska, or APO/FPO/DPO addresses may take longer transit times. Due to ever-increasing shipping costs, we add a $6.99 flat rate for all boxes shipping within the US, and add $15 USD/box for Canada orders.

“We are amazed and blown away by this incredible box! My son told me he’s bringing the music from the box with him to his lesson on Tuesday because he can’t wait to learn to play it.”

“I loved the different levels of music. It is perfect sightreading for my student who has been playing for four years. I was so excited to see the rhythm and bowing and extension practice.”
