Class Description: It’s never too late to start playing an instrument! geared toward adult beginners, this class will cover the basics of violin playing. We will learn to tune and hold the instrument, produce a good sound, and play simple scales and songs in a fun, supportive environment. Students will leave the class with a solid foundation for further study and a new way to express themselves through music. The ability to read music, while helpful, is not required; all levels of musical experience are welcome.
