Workshop with Amy Wulfman, Tuesday-Thursday June 4-6, 2019, 6:00pm -7:15pm
Back by popular demand! Violinists and Violists of all levels, come begin and/or deepen your viola skills.
I believe all violinists should be conversant on viola, and all violists should work on becoming excellent sight-readers. Learning violin gives students fast fingers and a great technique which is totally transferable to viola should the student ever decide that the lower sound is his or her heart’s desire!
Playing violin and viola enables musicians to have the fun of jumping into performing groups at any time of their lives, as good violists are rarer than violinists — often welcomed with open arms! The viola has a lovely, warm sound, and has a lower range than the violin. The viola is the middle voice between violin and cello.
There is no need to choose between instruments! Once a student knows how to play violin, playing viola is largely a matter of reading notes in a different clef. Violin parts are written in treble clef while viola is in alto clef.
This course is designed for two separate groups:
- Middle School through High School group (rising grades 7-12),
- Young Musicians group (rising grades 2-7).
Tuition: (until workshop is full) $245.00
