Students in Exploring Violin begin their violin journey in this engaging and well-structured group class. Fundamentals, such as holding the violin and bow, posture, and pre-twinkle repertoire, will be introduced. The class will also introduce pitch and rhythm with the incorporation of fun activities and games. At the end of each class, there will be time reserved for listening to both live and recorded performances.

Please note: Parent participation, attendance in each class, and regular practice outside of class are required. Students are required to rent/purchase their own child-size violin.
