MWSA Excellence in Strings Scholarship

Congratulations to Olivia Jensen!  Excellence in Strings Senior Award winner from Green Canyon High School.

"Music has changed my life for the better. Learning how to play the cello  is probably one of the hardest things I've ever done, but also the most  rewarding. It requires a lot of practice and patience, but the payoff is  worth it. Music has taught me how to work towards my goals and how to  work with others. I love making music and am so grateful for the  opportunity Mountain West Strings gave me when I was in elementary  school that ultimately brought me to where I am today" - Olivia Jensen

MWSA Excellence in Strings Scholarship




Congratulations to Morgan Lamb!  Excellence in Strings Senior Award winner from Mountain Crest High School.

"I truly appreciate Mountain West Strings for my start with the cello.   It was a great starting point and it gave me a great foundation.  It  also gave me a great place to meet friends and was a great  learning environment.  I loved the ambassador program which gave me some  great learning opportunities.  I was so glad to be able to continue the  cello all the way through high school, where I was able to learn about  leadership by being a section leader and also hard work and  determination by qualifying for state as a soloist and in an ensemble.  I  also learned to work with others as we worked towards a common goal". - Morgan Lamb

MWSA Excellence in Strings Scholarship






Congratulations to Jadyn Littlefield!  Excellence in Strings Senior Award winner from Sky View High School. 

From Jadyn: "I have been fascinated with the violin for as long as I can remember. When I was taking piano lessons my teacher also taught violin. I remember begging my mom to let me start taking violin lessons, but she told me to wait for the program at school. So I did, and I finally started playing the violin with MWSA. Little did I know that it would mold me into the person I am today. I have never missed a year of orchestra, and I don’t plan on missing it in the future. Keep playing, that’s all I have to say. There were times I wanted to give it up because it was too difficult, but I kept with it. And now I’m going to college and planning on using it in my future career. The violin is my passion, and I love making music with it. So make sure to keep playing because I promise you won’t regret it!!"

Instrument Returns and 2nd year Registration Info


Rent for the summer:
To reduce the amount of people who will be at the shop for instrument rentals, we are asking those who would like to rent over the summer to do so at home and not come to the shop. Please fill out this google form https://forms.gle/uRykvCrVZSQEAz5v7  . This form will remain active until May 31. If you have any questions or need help filling out your form, please call 435-770-9189.  You can pay for your rental by either PayPal (after the google form, there is a pay now option)

or mailing a check to :
Mountain West String Academy
PO Box 203
Mendon, UT 84325


Return your instrument for the summer:
We are structuring instrument returns different this year as well.  We have separated the schools in to different time windows to allow for fewer people at any given time and we will be utilizing a curbside drop off option this year.  When you come to the shop we will have teachers there to help direct you on where to park along the curb.  There has been construction along 400 South and the road might still be closed off when we do returns so we will have signs and faculty members directing cars along the block. We ask that you stay in your vehicles and have your instrument ready for pick up.  Please make sure that you have everything that was included with the instrument when you first rented it (rosin, bows, end pin straps - cellos and basses).  We will have a teacher fill out the return form for you and they will take the instrument from your car to check the serial number and MWSA numbers before checking it in to the shop.  They will then bring you the copy of your form to indicate that you are finished and everything is in order.  Your health and safety is very important to us and to help reduce cross contamination between students, teachers will be wearing masks and sanitizing hands and equipment in between each student.

Because of the tight schedule for returns, we ask that you make all efforts to come to the shop during this time.  If you cannot come at that time, and don't have a family member or neighbor to bring the instrument back for you, please call 435-770-9189 to make other arrangements.  Please DO NOT come to a different school's time.
