Violin Friends 1 (Fall Semester Only)
Students are introduced to the violin and learn plucking, posture and an introduction to the bow. Essential musicianship skills such as reading notation, singing, improvisation and composition are part of every class. For this first level class, violins are supplied by BKCM and used during class time only.

Violin Friends 2 (Spring Semester Only)
Students who have had one semester of Violin Friends Level 1 continue to develop the basic music skills and techniques necessary for violin performance. In addition to bowing, plucking, posture and body awareness, students learn beginner violin repertoire. Students are required to rent or purchase a violin for the 2nd level of Violin Friends. Parents are provided with resources and tools to help their child practice at home.

Instrument Friends

In the Community Music School, we encourage our youngest learners to join these engaging group classes, where the low student-to-teacher ratio ensures that students get both individual attention and support from their peers. At this age, students are naturally curious about how instruments create melodies and rhythms. Instrument Friends classes capitalize on this interest to teach essential musical elements such as basic reading, notation and instrumental technique, which are stepping stones toward formal private lessons. At the end of each 15-week semester, students perform in a group recital, building confidence and performance skills that prepare them for private lessons.
