For students who want to explore the fun of playing the violin in a group setting.

Program starts with Stringbabies Method from UK

Our students learn to play their chosen instrument in a happy, relaxed atmosphere. They compose their own melodies, sing, and advance toward reading conventional music notation in a natural progression, but at a much earlier age than is normal - some even before they can read!

Stringbabies has been developed by Kay Tucker, one of the UK's leading cello teachers. Kay originally developed the Cellobabies program following result of years of experience with younger cellists.

The program has been successfully transferred to the viola & violin with the help, encouragement and participation of leading UK viola & violin teachers.​

Stringbabies provides just that opportunity for younger ones to:

  • learn to play the Cello, Viola or Violin

  • overcome the sight reading barrier

  • acquire the very best techniques right from the start

  • develop singing, rhythmic, composition and aural skills

  • really enjoy themselves in the process
