This course is for adults and mature teens who are absolute beginners on the violin.
Through work with very simple tunes we will cover holding the instrument and bow, basic concepts for sound production, and introductory fingerings. We’ll also learn how to tune the instrument using a tuner and begin to develop your sense of rhythm using a metronome. By the end of this class you should be able to play a few simple tunes and understand how the violin works.
This course is taught by Robin Kearton, head of C4A’s string department. All sheet music and practice guides will be provided. You’ll need your own instrument; contact us if you need help locating one.
