• Welcome!  My name is Joseph Cieslak and I am the strings teacher for Clearwood Junior High, Whispering Forest Elementary, Bonne Ecole Elementary, Slidell Junior High, and Northshore High School.  I am a graduate of Loyola University with a Bachelor's in Music Education, and the Co-Director of the New Orleans Volunteer Orchestra.

    On this site you will find helpful information for any student taking strings or interested in taking strings, including a syllabus, calendar, frequently asked questions, and additional resources.

    I am very excited to be teaching strings to your children - these are wonderful instruments and it is a rewarding experience to study them.  It is a subject that I am incredibly passionate about and I hope to share that with all of my students!

    Warmest Regards,

    -Joseph Cieslak
