Villa Musica’s String Program

In the Fall of 2015, Villa Musica implemented a new string curriculum based on the collective knowledge of its (then) 7 string faculty and their 180+ years of teaching experience!

Out of this came a new approach to how we structure the lessons and group the children by age AND the repertoire that we utilize to introduce new concepts.  It is very exciting for us to share this new program with our community.

Please search below for your child’s age group and then click to find out more about the program and its educational progression.

 

String “FUN”damentals (4-5 year olds)

This violin program is designed for children aged 4&5 who are complete beginners. The FUNdamentals class is primarily focused on posture and fostering healthy playing techniques while learning poems and tunes to promote learning. Click here for more info, days and times.

 

String Play (6-8 year olds)

This violin program is designed for children aged 6-8 and again is for beginners. This class moves at a slightly quicker pace than the FUNdamentals series because it is presumed that children taking this class are stronger readers thus allowing beginning elements of note-reading to be introduced right from the outset.
