Violin group Lessons
Introduction to the art of violin – Group lesson

 Group Lessons

Group instruction is designed for beginners and emphasizes basic technique, rhythm, tone and musical interpretation.Groups are limited to six students. Group lessons have certain benefits especially for the young ages.

– they are giving the children the feeling of participation in a performance which makes the whole experience of learning be infinitely more meaningful and motivating

– the enhanced aural awareness of ensemble, intonation, balance etc, together with opportunities to assess one’s own performance together with that of one’s peers, can have an enormous impact on musical learning

– students’ acquisition of technique and musical knowledge is enhanced and reinforced by listening, adapting to, and emulating members of their own peer group both consciously and, probably to a greater extent, unconsciously.

– Music-making in groups has infinite possibilities for broadening the range of experience, including critical assessment of the playing of others and a sense of performance.

– helps the children to develop the feeling  community and explore new communication – patterns.

The groups will be set up taking in regard the age, culture/language, time schedule and the expectations of the members and will be 1 or 1.30 weekly.
