Violin 1

$202 ($192 members) · 80 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks

Begin with the basics of violin, and learn to play "classy" tunes in no time. We’ll review the G, A and D major scales, and start learning to read music. You will refine the posture you established in Intro to Violin, and continue to build your technique with the bow. Along the way, you will learn about modes and how they are used in different genres.


Introduction to the Violin is recommended if you are new to the violin. Players who are self-taught or have played in other styles can begin here.
