The maximum size of each class is 8. Students from Kinder to 8th grade are accepted. The first class is Tuesday, October 3rd after school . Registration for this class is Tuesday, September 19th at 3:15pm, location on campus at Van Avery Prep to be determined. At registration we will measure each student for a violin size as well as accept payment for the class. The cost of this class is $330. This includes two months of violin rent ($100), a shoulder rest ($35) and tuition ($195).
In our beginning class we teach the Pascale Method..This amazing method was created by Susan Pascale, the director of the LA Children's Orchestra. This workbook is for ages 5 to 18 years of age and is included with tuition. The young students love the six pages of stickers and the 30+ videos that help them learn. By the end of the class students should be able to play the violin with correct technique and be proficient at playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
Students of our beginning class will have the opportunity to perform on our last day of class at 5pm in the gym at Van Avery Prep on December 5th as well as on stage at our annual Christmas Concert on December 9th at 7pm at Temecula Valley High School Concert Hall. This concert includes all three of our string orchestras performing on stage. Beginning violin classes will play first at the beginning of the program; first by themselves and second with our Chamber Orchestra backing them up playing a Symphonic advanced level version of Twinkle Twinkle Little star including timpani, bass drum, crashing cymbals and a string orchestra of 30 advanced players.
Following the class we recommend students begin weekly private lessons with one of our amazing violin teachers or a violin teacher in the area. We also encourage them to join our TCM Junior Orchestra in January. That is where the fun is ratcheted up several notches. Because the goal after all is to have fun!
On registration day (September 19th at 5:00pm parents will fill out billing paperwork, pay tuition and for those students that need to rent an instrument we will size them for a violin rental. Violin rentals include a $50 setup fee plus the two months rent ($50). The tuition is $195 for the 8 week course. The final cost is a "Kun" shoulder rest ($35) which TCM will provide on the first day of class.
