Violin Group Camp is for violinists ages 6-13 who enjoy learning new skills, developing techniques and performing with others. Students will engage in games and activities emphasizing aural skills, note reading, rhythmic dictation, ensemble playing and leadership within a fun, judgment-free learning environment. Group pieces will be learned and rehearsed together during the week in preparation for the final performance on Friday.
