Posture and understanding the instrument is supported with musical games, note learning and shared performances
Strings Appreciation 4-5 Yrs
Using a creatively structured framework that nurtures all aspects of learning string instruments. Aural notation, posture and violin technique are introduced through musical games. Mini-performances take place each term.
Violin Lessons 5-11 Yrs
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.
