Posture and understanding the instrument is supported with musical games, note learning and shared performances
VIOLIN 5 - 11 YEARS
In small groups, we begin to develop our pupils' skills in more depth by exploring formal techniques. They include plucking, bowing, posture and cross-bridge playing. Children are encouraged to listen and perform to each other, as well as to play along with the music teacher. Aural and sight-reading exercises given each week prepare our young musicians for later experiences with orchestral groups. As with other groups all pupils perform in an annual concert.
Whilst we do not actively promote graded examinations we can support pupils with additional lessons such as theory or aural training. Graded examinations are at the consideration and request by parents and teachers with applications or information sourced as a separate requirement to Music House for Children.
