  Group Violin   

Group classes at The Richardson School of Music are fun and exciting! They are an excellent way for Children, Teens and Adults to begin their musical training. These classes will focus on fundamentals, and will give students a supportive environment to blossom in their musical journey and also to be ready for the more intensive demand of private lessons. RSM classes will have a student/teacher ratio of 6/1 in most group classes —allowing for a significant amount of individual attention.

Parents often wonder if they should sign their child up for group lessons or private lessons! There truly is no right answer. Although many students, regardless of personality, do well in private lessons, some students learn better in a group setting. The social environment of group lessons just makes it a better fit for some!

In this class students will learn the fundamentals of the violin while having fun and learning with their peers! Students will work together as well as on their own using the “Essential Elements 2000 for Strings, Violin Book 1″.  Students will learn exercises to form a solid technical foundation, exploring the physicality of playing the violin as well as learning to read notes and rhythms. Also, each lessons will incorporate the use of computer software to reinforce music theory fundamentals.
