What is a viola? A viola is a member of the violin family. For young children, a viola can be the exact same size as a student-sized violin and is played just like a violin- cradled between the shoulder and chin. The difference is in the sound. A viola is tuned a perfect 5th lower than a violin, giving it a slightly deeper yet incredibly beautiful tone. This 6 week class is for beginners with no experience playing the viola. We will start off with basic care and maintenance, learn to read music notation, and progress to playing simple songs from our method book. The goal of the class is to have fun learning a new instrument! For ages 8-12.To ensure that the class continues to move forward with new material each week, there is the expectation that students will practice 3-5 days a week for a minimum of 10- 15 minutes each practice session. Books will be given out on the first day of class and their cost is included in the registration fee. Vermont Violins is offering discounted rental violas for the duration of the class. Viola and bow are $30 + $5 for rosin (required). Please call / visit their Church St. location to get your discounted rental viola!

**Students must have a viola prior to the first class. Instrument will not be issued at class.
