Violin Discovery Workshop Series



Discover a new instrument, and the music it can make!
Designed for parents and children 4-8 yrs old, this workshop introduces children to the violin, and the basic positions and movements involved in creating music from the instrument.  Using the classical, folk and popular string music, we will also cover the basic building blocks of music: melody, harmony and rhythm. Great for families considering violin lessons but not quite ready to commit. Families will help build a box violin that children can use during learning activities.

Continuing Lessons

If your child has discovered an interest in playing the violin, you are welcome to continue with weekly private lessons at the studio in Columbia City. Studio calendar rates and policy documents will be distributed as well. I am happy to offer workshop participants who register for lessons during the current school year a discount of $15 off each of the first three (3) full monthly payments. If you were referred to the studio by a current family, you will receive the referral discount instead.
