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!
Geared toward the young beginner, students get to have fun and be social, while building confidence and learning all the fundamentals of music and performance!
After group violin lessons, students may start one-on-one violin lessons with our private instructor.

Student Materials for our Group Violin Lessons for Kids
All group lesson materials are provided and included. Students will start with a 3-ring binder or folder with lined paper, which will soon get stuffed with sheet music, printed lyrics, worksheets, drawing activities and colouring pages.
A violin is provided in the room during the lesson. Instrument rentals and purchases are available. Students can bring their own instrument upon consultation with the school. It's highly recommended that students have their own violins to practice on and take care of outside of class.
