The violin is a wonderful instrument to begin as early as age four. The study of the violin develops musicality, ear training, finger dexterity, pitch recognition and rhythmic skills; it also foster a student’s creativity, musical expression and appreciation, helps develop a high spatial I.Q. and boosts mathematical and science skills. In the lessons, students will learn the proper position for holding the instrument and bow, bow technique, proper finger placement, tone production and note reading. The focus will be on learning the solo literature with ample opportunities to perform in recitals and with other students.

hand position, posture, good tone and sound production, correct
finger placement, tonal comprehension and musical awareness.
