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! A beginner violin costs around £60-£100.

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