Copyright 2010 by Teays Valley Strings Welcome to Teays Valley Strings! Teays Valley Strings is a non-profit organization with a board of advisors that was started in January, 2006.  The purpose of this program is to give students in Putnam County an opportunity to learn to play string instruments, including violins, cello and violas.  There is substantial evidence that exposure to music helps to increase intelligence, develops better coordination skills, and enhances creativity.  The Teays Valley Strings program emphasizes learning music of other cultures and students are provided with books containing music pieces from many countries. The director is a volunteer who works with the students four days a week.  A limited number of instruments are owned by West Teays Elementary School, Teays Valley Strings, and the director. Mr. Meyer has generously donated his time to this organization to allow our children to learn the art of playing these instruments!  If your child is interested in music and lives in Putnam County, West Virginia, contact us for further information.   Teays Valley Strings Dr. Frederick Meyer 808 Echo Road South Charleston, WV 25303
