Suzuki Violin Intro
Ages 3-10

Join the movement of teaching violin that has proven successful for many years for young students and their parents. Students learn fundamentals of posture, instrument care, relaxed movement and tone production. At the conclusion of the Introductory level, students should be able to move from rest position to playing position with their instruments and play Twinkle Variation A. While private lessons in addition to the group class are strongly encouraged for optimal student success, they are not required. Parental involvement is essential at this beginning stage, and should be able to commit to daily practice with their child. An introductory meeting will educate parents about Suzuki philosophy and give them tools to help them effectively carry out their role as a practicing parent at home. Required materials are Suzuki Volume 1 book and CD, and a rental instrument.

Juilliard Junior
Ages 5-6

^

Juilliard Junior is the prime time for young children to connect with music through their voice and body. Students will learn age-appropriate classical, folk, and world music with Orff instruments, including  xylophone and unpitched percussion instruments. Activity-based songs engage even reluctant singers to participate and learn pitch-matching skills for better singing! Rhythmic and melodic reading skills will be introduced to lay a foundation of musical knowledge and skill for a well-developed progression in music learning.

Music Theory & Skills

Music Theory is the “language” of music, just like writing and grammar is behind our spoken language. Exploring music’s written language away from the practice room allows a student to progress much more quickly in their developmental skill of a given instrument. Student progress will be measured using the appropriate level theory, history, technique and ear training material from the Music Development Program of the Royal Conservatory of Music. Enrollment in Private Studio Lessons or a vocal/instrumental ensemble class is required. Classes will be arranged in groups based on enrollment. Music Theory is for all students studying any level of music.
