Course description

Learn to play in this friendly group class, which covers technique, music-reading and performance skills.

In Violin Starters, children will develop confident and secure violin technique, learn how to read and interpret music notation, perform a variety of music as a soloist and as part of the group, and also compose and improvise their own music.

Short weekly practice tasks are set, so children start to build a regular practice routine from the outset, helping them to make enjoyable progress and preparing them for the regular practice needed to master an instrument.

As a two-term course with six children in a class, this course offers time and space for real progression. At the end of the course children will have a solid grounding in the instrument and will be ready to move on to small group lessons, paired or individual tuition.

A violin will be required for this course - but please don't order one until we have advised what size to get! 

If you wish, you can order one from us when booking and we will supply the correct size after the first lesson.
