Violin- Adults, Beginner II
This program is currently unavailable. Click here to view all of our current programs.
This is a beginners class. Students are expected to have basic working knowledge of how to play violin. Students should know the basics of reading music. If you have played violin in the past and wish to take this class, please email the instructor prior to registering to find out if this class is appropriate for your skill level.
Practice. You need to plan to practice on your own at home at least 15-20 minutes, 3-5 days a week. On the first day we will go over the proper way to practice in order to effectively learn and retain material we cover each week.
The book we use in the program is included in the registration fee. Once registered, the instructor needs an email letting her know which instrument you plan to learn so the appropriate book will be available for you on the first day.
You must have your instrument for the first day. If you don’t already own an instrument, contact the instructor for information on obtaining one prior to purchasing or renting. Some instruments on online will not be suitable for this program.
