NEW! Group Viola for Violinists

10+ years
Playing viola is a valuable skill for violinists.  Students explore the unique characteristics and subtle technical differences between the violin and viola, learn to read music in the Alto clef, and play pieces written especially for the viola. There are many advantages and opportunities for violinists who also understand the viola.  This class is available to violinists who have completed Suzuki Book 3, and can be taken on its own or as part of a Young Artists Program.  Class size limited to 6.
