Strings | The Music Garden

Strings: Violin, Viola, Cello


What to Expect

Students will master all the techniques necessary to become a great string musician. On the way, students learn basic music theory, (including how to read music), and musicianship skills. Students will build strong technique through scales and various exercises, and learn to play beautiful melodies along the way.

About Private Lessons

Practice is mandatory for private lessons. Parents of younger students must commit to assisting their child with daily practice.

Instrument: Student must have a good quality instrument for lessons. No "toy" stringed instruments, please. We would be happy to help you find an instrument to rent or purchase!

Suggested Daily Practice:
Ages 6-8: 15-20 min
Ages 9-13: 30 - 40 min
Ages 14 and above: 45 - 60 min

The students are invited to participate in two recitals each year: winter (late November or early December)
and spring, (late April or early May).
There is a recital fee of $25 due in November and April.
