Lakewood City Schools begins music education in kindergarten with string classes starting in the 5th grade. We have 3 fulltime string specialists and boast 6 orchestras at the Lakewood High School.

In addition to the curricular offerings, we have extracurricular groups. The middle school level has "Strolling Strings" and at the high school there are "The Four Seasons String Quartet" and "The Lakewood Project". Also, during the summer months The Lakewood Orchestra Program hosts 3 day camps for young and intermediate string players.

The City of Lakewood has a population of close to 52,000 in an area of 6.691 square miles. We are a walking, biking, front porch; fine arts based community located west of Cleveland in the inner ring of suburbs. Lakewood is the home of "The Lakewood Civic Auditorium" which is located on the campus of Lakewood High School. The hall's acoustics were designed by George Szell so that the Civic Auditorium would be the West Side home of The Cleveland Orchestra. The Lakewood Civic Auditorium hosts professional concerts of all genres and is also the home of Lakewood City Schools' seasonal concerts.
