Students will learn in a one on one or small family group format where their needs and skills will drive the direction of the course. Each week will be a progression at the student's own pace and style. For True Beginners (Students who have no prior experience or who cannot read music) I recommend we use the Rubank Elementary Method Violin Book, which is heavy on theory and exercises, and ideal for a student who may want to learn multiple styles or focus on folk or fiddle after learning...
Students will learn how to read music. Students will learn the basics of violin or viola playing including Bow control, Finger positioning, Tone and Pitch, and basic Music Theory and Notation.
Students will be expected to practice 20-30 minutes 5 days a week in order to master each lesson.
Each beginner student will be expected to buy a Rubank Elementary Method book or a Suzuki Violin Volume 1 book, both are under $10 on Amazon. Students who have previous experience studying violin may bring whatever material they've completed prior to determine their playing skill and needs. Students may be given access to Musicca, and noteflight via screen share. No accounts are required on these resources, but students can benefit from their own noteflight accounts. Students will also be given access to practice videos and tools on Youtube
Learned progress is assessed in ongoing performance of assigned material.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
The Rubank Method does have 2 songs I skip due to content that is outdated or may be offensive.
Violin: The Rubank Elementary Method or Suzuki Volume 1 for Violin (I prefer the Suzuki book for most students.) Viola: Suzuki Volume 1 for Viola
