We're so pleased that the Sunnyside String School has relocated to their very own space in Sunnyside, right above the Fresh n Save Marketplace on 46th Street and Greenpoint Avenue. Inside, owner Choi Fairbanks has created a wonderland of children's programming and music instruction that nurtures kids' imaginations and innate talents.
The Sunnyside String School offers lessons in violin, cello and other instruments, but they also offer a huge variety of other programming that we've just learned about - everything from Lego and art classes to camps and movie nights, and even an all-kids orchestra and a kids' rock band. Parents will be delighted to hear about her Friday Night Out program - a special movie night for kids, which allows parents to enjoy a date night (perhaps at a local Sunnyside restaurant!?).
Choi has called Sunnyside home over the past 12 years, and is a parent herself, with her musician husband Jeff Fairbanks. She loves the diversity of the neighborhood, and feels it is an exciting and welcoming place to raise her family and her business. She is a cellist with a background in jazz and classical music, and enjoys teaching and engaging with kids through music and other arts.
The Sunnyside String School has been open for the past 8 years, and was previously located in All Saints Church. Her students come from all over the neighborhood, as well as Jackson Heights, Astoria and even further out in other Queens neighborhoods. She loves her new space in the heart of the neighborhood and encourages parents to check out the class schedule on Facebook.
