Studio News Term 1, 2021

Term 1 dates are 1st February to 1st April

Welcome to violin lessons for 2021!

The themes for this term are Resonance and Rhythm.

New features in 2021

Listening to different pieces of music – As well as your Suzuki recording, let’s get to know some music for orchestra.  This term we’ll learn about ‘Carnival of the Animals’ by Saint-Saens.

Musicianship for young children – In response to requests from parents, and because I see a need, fun classes for boys and girls are available, either small groups or individual lessons. Give your young preschooler a head start before they start formal instrumental lessons; percussion, singing and movement will help children develop an ear for music and a feeling for the beat.
