Violin Ensemble for Kids

violin recitalThere’s no need to wait until you’re “good enough” to start playing with other musicians–we will teach you how to work in a group!

And yes, it will be fun!

This ensemble is suitable for all beginning to advanced beginning level violin students, aged 4 to 12 (or consent), even if you just started! There will be 2 sections to account for age range and experience.

Our focus will be on skills required to be a good ensemble player:

  • Rhythmic precision
  • Group tuning
  • Responding to cues (visual and aural)
  • And, most importantly, synchronizing with others.

Additionally, students will receive experience playing in front of others and learn the fine art of giving and receiving constructive criticism.

This class is not a replacement for lessons, and students in the class need to have a teacher.  They can study at C4A or in another teacher’s studio, but they do need to be taking lessons to participate.
