Program Description


Do you have a child that loves the violin but you’re not sure if they are ready for lessons? Join the Ready, Set, VIOLIN class to find out! This class provides an opportunity to explore violin lessons without a financial commitment. During the free, 5-week class families get ready for formal lessons by learning basic skills required for successful lessons.

By the end of the class, families will learn:

  • how to take a bow
  • how to stand with the correct posture
  • how to hold a violin and bow
  • ear training so the song can be learned by ear
  • to develop concentration and observation skills
  • to become familiar with Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star variations
  • preliminary bow exercises to play rhythms

Parents and adult caregivers participate in the class. All materials will be provided. No violin is required; the Suzuki method begins on the box violin and then moves to a real violin when the child is ready. The Suzuki method educates children in the same way they learn their native language, through immersion! All concepts are taught through play, games, stories, and picture books. Adults will have a better understanding of the Suzuki method of education by the end of the class. Sensei Glenda Walsh Crouse is the director of Westminster Suzuki Strings. She has 19 years of experience nurturing young artists. 


Only kids need to register.
