Group Violin Classes

Group classes are perfect for students and families to “try-out” the violin with a less intensive way of learning technique and musicality than CSPA’s Suzuki Program or Traditional Private Lessons. Students remain in a class or are moved based on the instructor’s assessment, which means some students may be in the same class for more than one semester or year. 


Group Violin - Foundations

Times: 9:00-9:30am    Cost: $275/ year (includes use of violin)
For students who have never played. Emphasizes the posture of both the violin and the bow and the mechanics of how the hands coordinate to play the instrument.

Day: Saturdays   Dates: Sep 17-Dec 10*; Spring TBD

Similar to Foundations, this class is for students who have a bit of experience playing, but the class moves at a faster pace, leading into rhythm and note reading.

Group Violin - Choir

Day: Saturdays  Dates: Sep 17-Dec 10*; Spring TBD
Times: 11:15am-12:00pm   Cost: $275/ year (includes use of violin)
