Course Description

In this friendly and supportive group atmosphere, children will learn how to play the violin that is rooted in folk traditions. The repertoire emphasizes social music-making, learning by ear, an our methods follow best practices in active music education. Your children will learn how the violin is held and how a bow is balanced to achieve a pleasing sound. They'll also learn how to care for their instruments. Children will need to rent a fractional violin sized for your child, from The Strings Project in Palatine. You can also pick up rosin, shoulder rest sponges, and practice books. To inquire about what violin size students must bring in, please contact Mr. Gabriel at gar@ameritech.net.
