Group Violin Lessons for Kids

Your little one will always have a story for you when you ask how group violin class went. We keep learning dynamic and relatable for their age. Playing the violin in groups builds spatial awareness. You’ll see what we mean when bows start a-flying! 


Beginner Violin Class Information

Our young beginner violin students get to have fun and be social in groups, while building confidence and learning all the fundamentals of music and performance.


Students are finished group lessons either when they are playing and understanding at a Royal Conservatory of Music Violin Prep Level, or they are aged out of the program. After group violin lessons, students may start one-on-one violin lessons with our private instructors. 


Your child will be sized for a violin upon starting. Contact the school to setup your ongoing lesson plan.

She spent 7 years as artist-in-residence for the conseil scolaire catholique Providence where she taught the arts using hands-on, innovative methods, completing large collaborative visual art and music projects with kids in JK/SK, primary, intermediate and secondary classrooms. Her visual arts degree is from University of Windsor and she has received additional artist-educator training throughout her career from Jumblies Theatre (Toronto), Royal Conservatory of Music, and Multicultural Council of Windsor.  Michelle has co-developed and co-delivered a bilingual professional development program for Ontario-based music and visual arts educators through the Ontario Arts Council.
