Late 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 Beginner classes, or who have played violin in the past and still remember the basics as listed below. This semester culminates in a concert, twice a year, where pieces will be performed for friends and family.
Students enrolling in this class should feel comfortable playing 2-3 scales, reading some accidentals, executing more than one bowing technique (including slurs), knows how to use the 4th finger, may have started learning double stops. This semester, Late Beginner students will learn every single note on the violin (or viola), will learn the C Major, G Major, F Major and 2-octave D Major scale, which will include shifting into a higher position, and playing a little something in each of these keys! This is a whole new level of playing, and very exiting!
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 7:30pm – 8:30pm & Saturdays from 1:00pm-2:00pm. 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
You have learned so much on the violin, which makes it fun to pick up new pieces to play, but I bet it’s intimidating to do so. That’s why I want to teach you every single note on the violin in 1st position. That’s the position you’ve been playing in all along. We’ll worry about those high notes later.
I want to empower you to be able to pick up any piece of sheet music and know exactly what note to play. Knowing when to play a sharp, a natural and a flat (yep, we’ll cover that) isn’t as hard as you would think. I will help you navigate the fingerboard geography so you know exactly what note to use every time. And, we’ll play a little something in each key signature. I don’t know about you, but I’m really excited for that! So join me on this adventure that will be so much fun!
