Have you always wanted to play the violin, or have you played in the past and want to pick it up again? From the fiddlers of the Hardanger plateau in Norway to the Highlands of Scotland and Cape Breton Island, from the stage of Carnegie Hall to the quaint fiddlers of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the Carolinas, the violin has succeeded in suiting every style and fulfilling every need. We will explore the balance needed for proper tone production, along with how to read notes, comfortably hold the bow, and play in small ensembles. Violin players of all levels welcome. Please bring a violin and a shoulder rest. An appropriate textbook to be determined after the first class will be required for approximately $15-18. drum, a large pot, or another object to play. Rentals are available and deliverable. Please call 781-316-8068 for rental details. Please note: class does not meet the week of April 15th due to April Vacation.
