Summer Violin Starters
Our Violin Starter class is a small group class specifically to give students an opportunity to try out the violin within a short eight week period. Each weekly half hour class will introduce a new foundational technique that will move the students ability forward. After the eight weeks students will have experience a basic understanding of playing the instrument and should have a good feel for whether or not this is the instrument for them.
Working with your summer schedule: If for some reason you are to miss a class because of a vacation or other conflict we are happy to offer a private makup class to cover any missed material for $15.
Some of the things covered in this class include:
Proper instrument handling
Posture while playing
Beginning music theory and note reading
String plucking - Pizzacato
Open string playing
Bow grip and bow arm positioning
Bowing (creating a clear sound)
Fingers on finger board
Short term violin rentals are available
