ABOUT OUR STRINGS PROGRAM (AGES 5+)
Violin, viola, and cello instruction is offered as a weekly 30, 45, or 60 minute private lesson for beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. Our instructors use a combination of Suzuki and other methods for a perfect balance of developing strong intonation and technique while also giving students a strong note-reading background. Our students enjoy playing their favorite songs while being introduced to a variety of new styles of music such as classical, movie themes, contemporary/pop, fiddling, folk, celtic, and more.
STRINGS FOR BEGINNERS
All of our violin, viola, and cello instructors love working with beginners, and have experience creating a structured program to help students master foundational aspects such as good posture, bow control and technique, intonation, tone production, note-reading, rhythm, theory, and more while ensuring that the student is having a positive experience and loving their lessons. Whether your child is preparing to start violin, viola, or cello in school soon, or whether they just want to give one of these beautiful instruments a try, our instructors will help to create a strong foundation.
STRINGS FOR EXPERIENCED STUDENTS
Whether students come to us with prior experience from their school orchestra or a private teacher, or whether they started with us as beginners and continued to advance, we know how to help them reach their next goal. Intermediate or advanced violin, viola, and cello students learn how to play more challenging music and fine tune and polish their playing by mastering more advanced techniques and theoretical applications. Whether students want to learn a new style, prepare for a competition or audition, or just keep playing for fun, we have the skills and experience to get them there.
STRINGS FOR ADULTS
Many of our adult string students have always had the dream of playing the violin or cello, and many others played as a child and wish to pick their instrument back up again. Whether students have a busy career, are a busy parent, or are a retired adult, our instructors are delighted to help them learn and enjoy how to play their favorite songs and styles of music.
