BEGINNING VIOLIN

CYMG’s Beginning Strings classes are for children under 14 who are experiencing their instrument for the very first time. Fall semester focuses on learning to hold the instrument correctly, developing professional form, reading music, and preparing pieces for a winter concert. Spring semester continues with more difficult pieces and new techniques, culminating in a spring concert. Classes are limited to 12 students per class such that students will receive proper personal attention.
