Always wanted to try violin but never had the chance? Or do you just want to try something new? Our adult and teenager beginner violin class requires no previous musical experience and provides a low pressure group setting to learn the basics of playing the violin in only a few weeks! You will be introduced to core violin techniques while learning some easy pieces from both classical and fiddling traditions, you'll learn how to read music for the violin, and how to play together with others.
