On  March 19th, 2024 our director Brad Bohn will be teaching our 8 week  beginning violin course.  There will be two separate group classes taught, one at 4pm and one at 5pm. The maximum size of each class is 8 students.     Registration for this class is Tuesday, March 12th  at  5pm  in the Van Avery Gym. At registration we will measure each student for a violin size as well fill out paperwork and accept payment. The cost of this class is $330 and includes a two month violin rental , a shoulder rest and an instructional book. The violin rental is  $110 for the 8 weeks. ($30 a month for two months with a $50 setup fee and includes insurance.)


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 in our spring concert on Friday, May 17th at  7pm at Temecula Valley High School Concert Hall. This concert includes all three of our string orchestras performing on stage. Our Beginning Violin Class students will be the first to perform on stage,  first by themselves and a second time through with our Chamber Orchestra backing them up playing a Symphonic version of Twinkle Twinkle Little star including timpani, bass drum, crashing cymbals and a string orchestra of 30 advanced players. 

The concert will constitute the last event of the Beginning Violin Class. Following the concert, for those students that have decided that violin is the instrument for them we highly recommend they begin weekly 30 minute private lessons with one of our amazing violin teachers at our studio. Our weekly 30 minute lessons are $165 a month. We also encourage these students  to  join our TCM Junior Orchestra in August. That is where the fun is ratcheted up  several notches with 50+ other beginning students meeting weekly to make friends, play amazing music and just have fun! Junior Orchestra  also is special in that it benefits from our Musical Mentors program wherein our top students mentor and help them to achieve their goals go to amazing places like Carnegie Hall and on tour to Austria like them. 


Again on  registration day (March 13th at 5:00pm in the Van Avery Gym)  parents will fill out billing  paperwork, pay tuition and students will be sized for a violin.
