INTRODUCTION (Ages 2 - 6)
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!
The program has been successfully transferred to the viola & violin with the help, encouragement and participation of leading UK viola & violin teachers.
Viva Musica is the first academy offering the Stringbabies program in Canada!
Stringbabies Teacher is trained directly with Kay Tucker and certified to teach the program in Canada!
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
