Suzuki Violin (4 -5 years)

The approach to this Suzuki violin enrichment class is organized around three fundamental philosophies:
(1) that musical ability is developed, not inherited;
(2) that every child is capable of learning to play a musical instrument if provided with an appropriate learning environment; and
(3) that the extra-musical skills developed while learning to play an instrument are equally, if not more important than the musical skills (Suzuki, 1983).

The content of a weekly Suzuki violin enrichment class includes listening and learning the music fundamentals like pitch, tone, timing, articulation, and dynamics and well as basic violin techniques from posture and holding the instrument to producing a tone.

Fees include use of a violin during class.
