VIOLIN

Violin Lessons  - This class is an introduction to violin playing in a group setting. Emphasis will be given to proper posture of the body, the head (violin hold), right hand (bow hand), and left hand (fingers, wrist, arm). Instrument  care, and history and appreciation of stringed instruments and western classical music will be incorporated into the class, as well. (Expectation alert: Stringed instrument playing requires much patience in the production of skill, tone, intonation, and ability to play actual music!)
