Violin Performance Studio (Professional Program)
This class is for students who are aiming for a professional music career. Effective stage performances and competition preparations will be the focus of lessons. Scales, unaccompanied Bach Sonatas and Violin Concertos will be learned. Various technical demanding caprices such as Paganini or Ernst will be used in place of method books. Some of our violin faculty’s students have already enrolled into Germany’s finest Musikhochschule (University of Music) including Wuerzburg, Mainz, and Dresden. Their current students are winners of Fraser Kiwanis Festival and B.C Provincial festival (2011).
For those students who are already enrolled in post graduate musical institutes will be expected to learn Violin Concertos and/or Orchestra excerpts for professional orchestra auditions.
Violin Education Studio (Beginner – Intermediate Program)
For students who have less experience or who are new to violin will be learning with method books such as Suzuki or RCM books. Students will learn to play violin with accurate rhythms, intonations and, most importantly, correct hand positions and shapes. RCM and Festival preparations will be delivered upon student request.
