Description

Class Experience

The goal of this class is to bring you from novice violinist to a tune-playing beginner. 
This involves 1) caring for the instrument, 2) proper playing position and posture, 3) making music with open strings along with recordings and each other, and 4) making music with open strings, fingered notes and rhythm patterns along with recordings and each other.  
At the age of three I saw and heard Yitzchak Perlman play violin on "Sesame Street" and asked to learn to play.  My training is in Suzuki violin, which requires intensive parent involvement.  As an adult, I have played in amateur orchestras as well as playing gigs for contra and square dances.  I was thrilled to find this accessible resource with a gentle learning curve for my occasional fiddle students - and even more thrilled when they agreed to let me pilot an Outschool class with the Strings Fun and Easy starter kit.  
Learners who practice in between our classes will progress faster and more easily.  
During each class you will need a tuned violin/fiddle of your size and bow. You will also need the free, downloadable Strings Fun and Easy starter kit and either a music stand or a shelf of some kind to hold up your music. You may be able to borrow a student fiddle for beginners. An easy place to purchase is Sharmusic.com. Most important is alignment, and that the tuning pegs, as well as the bow, tighten and loosen easily. Fiddles under $100 are rarely worth it. With a case and usable bow and rosin, you will spend between $100 and $200.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
