VIOLIN & CELLO LESSONS
(for ages 4 and up)
Our violin & cello teachers teach classical and pop styles of music. Beginner students can expect to work on technique, bowing, sight reading and song material - we balance musicianship and fun by making sure that each lesson you are challenged with a new technical or theory concept, but always end with something fun such as your favorite part of a song. We use the Hal Leonard violin method books to accomplish this and encourage students to bring CDs or their iPod to their lesson to learn their favorite tunes.
The violin is the soprano voice in the string family. It is held under the chin, resting on the shoulder. The violin has a lovely tone that can be soft and expressive or exciting and brilliant. The violin has fascinated both makers and players for more than four centuries. History acknowledges Andrea Amati from Cremona, Italy (c. 1500-1577) as the first violin maker. Amati’s workmanship set the standard in violin making for future generations. Three generations in the Amati family followed him in this trade. Noble families and royal courts during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries commissioned the making of these instruments. Thus the occupation, craft, and art of violin making were born. There were many great Cremonese makers, including the famous Stradivari whose violins are regarded as amongst the finest bowed stringed instruments ever created. Famous violinists such as Itzhak Perlman, Joshua Bell and Hilary Hahn reflect the range of the violin with its colorful tones from clear and bright to rich and powerful.
