Violin, Viola & Cello Lessons
As a beginning string student you will first learn how to properly hold your instrument and correct hand placement. You will then learn how to press on the strings with your left hand and how to pluck the strings with your right hand before learning correct bowing technique with your right hand. Intonation, or your sense of pitch, your ability to properly tune your instrument, and music reading skills are also important components of your lessons. You may study classical, folk, East Coast and Irish fiddle music at The Music Studio.
More advanced students may focus on refining their technique and interpreting string repertoire representing a variety of musical periods. Students who are enrolled in their school music program are encouraged to bring their school music to their lessons at The Music Studio.
