What’s in this Group Violin Class?
Do you have some experience the violin but not quite sure which class you fit into? Have you been playing violin for a few months to a year on your own without as much progress as you’d like? Can you play a scale on two strings and some fairly simple tunes and that’s it? Really wanting to bump your skills up to the next level?
Beginner Violin Class Details
Description & Pre-requisites
This is a 10 week group violin class semester suitable for beginners who have completed one of NYC Violin Studio’s Absolute Beginner classes, or who have played violin in the past and still remember the basics as listed below. The summer semester does not end in a concert, but rather, traditionally, a summer BBQ.
Students should have successfully completed the Absolute Beginner Class or have the ability to play D Major Scale, which includes being comfortable bowing and reading notes on two strings. This semester, students will learn the remaining two strings on the instruments, how and when to use the fourth finger, bowing more than one note at once, and more. For more details of skill levels required for this class, read our class level comparison here or schedule a phone meeting to see which is the best fit for you. Or, just write us an email. We’re super friendly.
What you’ll need: A violin, clipped nails, a webcam and mic. We’ll provide the rest including PDFs and online videos to play along to!
Where & When
While classes are traditionally held at 307 W 36th St, Floor 17, Suite 3, New York, NY, due to Covid-19’s impact on New York City, we are holding our Summer Semester online. If the option to attend in person opens up, we will add that. But the option to attend online will be available all semester.
Classes are held Wednesdays from 6:30pm – 7:30pm & Saturdays from 12:00pm-1:00pm. New class material is presented on Wednesday and repeated on Saturday. See the full calendar here. Students are now welcome and encouraged to attend all 20 classes. If you do so, you will see your progress soar. If you can’t, you may also attend once weekly. And don’t forget, with the All Access Pass, you may attend ANY class, which means you can get a sneak peak at a harder class, or warm up with an easier class.
How to Register & Cancellation Policy
Early bird discount codes are available on the Group Classes page.
You may schedule and purchase a single class, or for much greater value and guaranteed progress, sign up for the full semester by purchasing either the All Access Pass or the All Access Pass Payment Plan, which divides the package into three automatic payments. Once payment is complete, schedule yourself for all of the classes you will be attending. This is an important step for the teacher to accurately plan the class.
The registration deadline is one week before the semester starts. Late enrollments are accepted on the condition of 1 or more catch-up private lessons. However, try to register as early as possible so the pieces and exercises can be tailored to who is going to be in the class for that semester (yes, we really do this).
Cancellation policy: In group classes, there is no penalty for a late cancel. However, please note that all discounted group lessons packages expire at the end of the semester. Single class purchases do not expire. If the minimum amount of class attendees is not met, your payment will be refunded or credited.
Why I Think You Should Join
After having completed the Absolute Beginner class, you’ve gotten a sweet, sweet taste of what violin playing could be like. You’ve gotten a glimpse of the potential other-worldly-travel a beautiful note can take you to. You yearn to make all of your notes sound like the virtuosos you’ve heard.
There is only one way to get there, and that is with more education, and with practice. The group classes help you do both. These classes were created in part to give you a reason to practice and to have any excuse at all spending more time playing. While perfect practice will yield much more perfect results, no practice will yield no results. And so we present to you an opportunity to make even more progress than last semester, since you don’t have to worry about the very basics any longer and can now concentrate on on just learning the heck out of that instrument.
Your next step in the violin adventure is so fun, because you get to absorb new information like a sponge, and the list of potential songs you can play rises exponentially with every class.
Don’t miss this opportunity to spend a few hours every week drastically improving your knowledge and skill of the violin. Your neighbors (I mean friends and family) will thank you!*
*In all seriousness, the walls dampen all the bad sounds you work through in practice and when your neighbors say, “Oh you’re the one who plays violin!” they are saying it as a compliment. Don’t believe me? Test it yourself!
