Violins are fascinating instruments that have challenged, entertained, disciplined and bonded people for over 400 years! Whatever your child’s level of interest or long-term goals may be, the study of an instrument is always a compliment to their academic, emotional and social development.
Lessons are designed for the complete beginner in a small group setting. Students will learn beginning music reading in conjunction with Suzuki-style (rote) learning. Daily home practice will be an essential part of the program and students will be responsible for completing a practice chart. Students may continue in the spring session with group setting or enroll in private instruction.

Until students are big enough to play on a full-size instrument,(approx. ages 11-14) it really makes sense to rent. I recommend Johnson String Instrument. A 3 month rental (minimum term) will cost $75. Please see their website or visit the store for detailed information.
