Private lessons are weekly throughout the session. In weekly lessons, we learn violin technique, beautiful tone production, rhythm, sight reading, prepared reading, and building/maintaining a repertoire.
Depending on the child's age and ability, lessons start at 30 minutes, then build to 1 hour.
It is required there is a consistent parent or adult who is part of the child’s lessons and practice at home. This parent or adult is expected to take notes with guidance of the teacher so they can help shape a home practice for their child.
An essential part of effective learning, group classes are in addition to private violin lessons. Group classes provide a wonderful opportunity to motivate students. In these classes, students will review music vocabulary, refine techniques, work and play together as an ensemble, develop leadership skills, and have a good time!
Group class gives students a peer group during their musical journey with other musical friends to play and improve with.
Group class is a requirement to take lessons at Terre's studio. Class is every other Wednesdays at 4:30.
