Children’s Violin Classes – Ages 3-5

$200 Per Class

Do you have a child who’s too young for private lessons but is excited to learn more about music?

This half-hour class is a great way to introduce children ages 3 to 5 years old to the violin. Students will improve motor skills and hand-to-eye coordination. Learning music has also been shown to improve cognitive development.

Classes are taught by violinist Hayley Gayne, a Berklee College of Music graduate, who has performed everywhere from the 9:30 Club to the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall.

Cost for the class is $200 and includes one month’s rental of a violin, sized to each child, as well as the Suzuki Violin Method Book 1, with CD.
