Salt Lake Valley NHO

Celebrating 10 Years of Making Music

Some call them music lessons; 
we call it social hour.

We are the Salt Lake Valley New Horizons Orchestra or SLVNHO. We also answer to the name "Senior Strings" as that describes who we are.

New Horizons Music programs provide entry points to music making for adults, including those with no musical experience at all and those who were active in school music programs but have been inactive for a long time.

"Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to

the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything"

Seniors (and younger folks) Making Music Together

at the Sandy Senior Center
It's never too late to learn to play a musical instrument

Violin, Viola, Cello or Bass, Come Play With Us!

  • Do you play a string instrument?
  • Did you play many years ago?
  • Would you like to learn to play one?
  • If your answer is "yes", we would love to hear from you

Students With Prior Experience

Our continuing group meets the needs of those who have played some but are not ready to play at the level of a community orchestra. Some began a year or two ago. Others played many years ago and are picking up their instrument once again.

We focus on rhythm, intonation, dynamics, articulation, and bowing.

Current music is easy to medium-easy. Students must be able to read music. 

Call us if you have  questions about our group and/or your level of ability.

Intermediate Class:   

Tuesday 8:00-10:00 a.m.


Thursday 8:00-10:00 a.m.

Location: Sandy Senior Center

Students With No Experience

We can form a beginner class (if enough interest) for those with no prior music experience or those with "rusty" skills.  Held in a very small group, there is lots of personal assistance. Some prefer to take private lessons for a bit to learn faster. We can help you find teachers. When ready, beginning students can advance to the intermediate group.
