Philosophy

Violin for Preschoolers classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical.  All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, providing that their early environment supports such learning. By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Violin for Preschoolers introduces children to the pleasures of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDs or TV.

Central to the Violin for Preschoolers approach is that young children learn best from the powerful role model of parents/caregivers who are actively making music.  The program brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the classroom and by facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home within the context of daily life.
