Violin Group Classes

Strings Group Classes with Amber Heath!  

Ages 6-12

Instruments: Violin / Viola / Cello — Please bring your own instrument if you have one.  We have a limited number of instruments available for a small rental fee to hold on to for the full program, or there are music stores with rentals in town (i.e. Sunday Guitars, Just Joe's Music). Please let us know if you do not have an instrument and we will help accommodate. 

The Basics: 6-week program - Friday's Starting October 15th 

October 15th, 22nd, 29th  -  November: 12th, 19th  -  December 3rd

Maximum of 8 students per class.  This is a small group opportunity that will take place over 6 class weeks, where students register for the full program.  Instruction will be developed so students will grow with their instrument over the course of the full program, and most importantly have FUN making music with a small group!   

We will be following the standard COVID face covering / distancing regulations as the schools for these classes, and will be using the larger event room at the Environmental Center to allow for an appropriate setup.

Beginner Class will teach the fundamentals of plucking and bowing technique, and note naming. Students will learn songs that they can practice on their own and perform.

Intermediate Class will focus on more reading and both fingering and bowing technique. Students will learn fundamentals of ensemble playing as they perform two and three-part harmonies in their songs.

My name is Tatiana Cobos and I have been playing guitar for about 7 years. Ever since I can remember it always fascinated me the way the guitar looked, how it sounded, and the way you move your hands when you play the instrument. Along these 7 years I have had a few teachers. Some didn’t challenge me the way I wanted to be challenged and others had a different vision for me than that I had for myself. A couple of years ago we came across Music Flow. At the end of the first lesson I felt more connected to the guitar and to music. My instructor challenges me and shows me new concepts that I couldn’t even image exist. Every Wednesday I cannot wait to go home from school and see my instructor and what he has in store for me. Music for me has become a place I can explore and have my own little bubble of creativity. I have found my love for the guitar and music, and I have no plan in stopping my lessons any time soon! I love Music Flow and what I have learned!
