Playing Beyond Classical:
Using Your Classical Training to Play Pop
In our violin group lessons, you will learn how to play the violin and transfer your classical training to popular music. Beginning by analyzing and surveying the historical differences between popular and classical music in violin music, we will explore different practice strategies, evaluate the role of the violin as a tool for melody and harmony, and investigate how we can become our own "one-man-band" through video. Our violin lessons will culminate in a capstone virtual performance in which all students will record, dub over, and submit a video of them playing a popular song.
