 Amanda Cunningham joins us in March to teach violin and fiddle!   







Three locations serving all of HRM including Dartmouth, Sackville, Halifax, Bedford, Beaverbank, Hammonds Plains, Tantallon, Eastern Passage, Cole Harbour and Clayton Park.

Beginner Level

Students learn about the parts of the violin, proper care and basic bowing, plucking and finger techniques. Students learn about rhythm, begin to read musical notation and are given small songs and finger exercises to improve left hand finger dexterity. A focus is put on how to hold the bow, intonation and skills that will allow the young violinist to move on to intermediate violin lessons.

Intermediate Level

Students continue to improve their intonation and bow hold and an emphasis is put on mastering different bowing techniques. Students tackle shifting (playing higher on the finger board), vibrato, and more difficult rhythms.
