Preparatory String Orchestra

Program Outline

This class offers the young student who has been playing a string instrument for over a year both the technical benefits of a group class and ensemble learning. It is the perfect complement to private studio instruction, and a continuation of the social learning of a Suzuki Group Class, or other early childhood group classes. The class will be in the style of a group lesson; with a focus on sight-reading, technique, and polyphonic (multiple voiced) music making, ending in a performance at the end of term, and the possibility of performing in the Junior category of the GVPAF.  Students are encouraged to be taking private lessons, play at a minimum of Grade 1 level RCM, and be starting to read music.
