Now is the best time to get an early start on violin classes for the summer. Give your older beginner ages 7-12 a head start before they enter the school music program in the coming Fall. Violin classes in the public schools are often large and it will be very difficult for your beginner to get the attention they need for a good start. Now is the time to set them up for success.
Start with 30 min. weekly lessons.
Give new students an opportunity to focus on good position and basic tone. There is not enough time to develop listening and memory skills once school starts. These students are much more successful if they are not faced with multi-tasking or learning to play the violin while reading music at the same time. Internalizing good instrumental skills and connecting the fingers to their ears gives them a better foundation.
Older students who receive personal attention and a careful start are more likely to develop the musical habits they need to keep up with their peers in their local school music program. Current research shows that Suzuki style students develop the listening and language processing skills needed for better study skills in school generally. Check videos of TEC students on our main website to discover how far TEC violin students can progress if they begin study before most school programs finally start instrumental programs.
It’s much more difficult to change bad habits after they have formed. Taking the time to get the right technique before students feel pressure to keep up with a large class is a much more successful experience. Good position and technique on their instruments gives the student more endurance for enjoyable and rewarding practice. Make the process less stressful and more musical by providing them with careful instruction before they enter the school music program.
