Violin students at the Institute receive one individual lesson per week. The parent attends each lesson and helps the student work on the material throughout the week of practice at home. The length of the lesson depends on the student's age, attention span, and level of advancement. Generally, beginners start with 10 to 20-minute lessons. As the student advances, the length of the lessons increases.
Violin students at the Institute also receive weekly or bi-monthly group lessons. The purpose of group lessons is to provide students with motivation, develop their self-confidence, teach them reading skills and to have fun! Group lessons are often a student's favorite music-related activity. The younger or less advanced students benefit from the modeling provided by the older students, and the older students enjoy being leaders. All violin group classes are Wednesdays at 4:00. The first Wednesday of the month is the best time for observations.
Please contact an instructor regarding enrollment. Students are enrolled at the instructor's discretion—the instructor may recommend that your child take the Sing & Play class before violin lessons.
