Violin Prep Course

for Older Children

This course teaches the first few pieces in Suzuki violin volume 1 (six different rhythm variations of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star). It is aimed at children aged around 7-11yrs working with a parent or other adult support person.

This course starts by learning how to hold the violin and the bow and works up to being able to play a few basic pieces. Once the notes of each piece have been learned, the piece will be polished. Developing a good violin posture and tone and the dexterity to play at CD-speed often takes most of book 1 so there is no hurry. Keep working on polishing posture, tone and speed and give it time.

 Course Materials

A narrow A4 ringbinder folder with tabs can be a good way to keep your violin paperwork in order.

 You will need a copy of:

Suzuki violin volume 1 (Revised Edition) book and CD (or mp3s)
