I offer two levels of group classes:
Yahara Fiddle Club (YFC) is a social performance group open to all violinists who have completed Suzuki Book 1 or equivalent. YFC meets on Mondays at 6441 Enterprise Lane in Madison from 4:30p - 5:15p. Taught entirely by ear, this group explores fiddle and violin music extending beyond standard Classical repertoire. We have learned tunes from Irish, American, Swedish and other traditions and often incorporate body movements (dance!) into our performances.
This is an active performing group and we have 2 to 3 performances per session. You must commit to attend at least 2 out of the three performances per session or 1 out of 2 in the Spring Session. Click here to see YFC in action!
Book 1 Group (BK1G) is a social performance group for any student studying Suzuki Book 1 with a private teacher. BK1G meets on Wednesdays at 6441 Enterprise Lane in Madison from 4:15p - 5:00p. Playing in a weekly group class is fundamental to experiencing the Suzuki approach fully. Students not only have the opportunity to maintain their repertoire, but by playing engaging games we learn how to play well together and communicate musically. Students who participate in group classes concurrently with private lessons are more likely to continue with their instrument in the future.
Pricing and session lengths are the same for both classes.
For the 2019-2020 school year, we have 3 class sessions:
