Violin and String Ensemble
Based in the Essential Elements, Suzuki, fiddle, and traditional methods, the Violin Classes focus on sound, memory, technical accuracy, and musicality. Etudes and rhythm exercises are part of every class. Ensemble playing is introduced to students at an early stage through duets and trios.
The String Ensemble and Violin Ensemble offers an opportunity for intermediate level musicians to play and perform together on a variety of repertoire. All aspects of technique and style are explored as musicians learn to create a ‘conversation’ with other musicians through music.
