Viola for Violinists 

Hey violinists, did you ever wonder what it’s like to play the viola? Here is your chance to find out. The similarities between these two instruments allow students to easily transfer their skills from violin to viola. However there are subtle and rich differences in tone production and technique and a whole different clef that violists read in! Recommended for violin students in Suzuki book 2 and up.

Students will be provided with violas to play and bring home to practice.
