This class requires students to register for weekly private lessons in addition to the 45-minute group class.

These classes provide the necessary building blocks for young musicians interested in playing stringed instruments. Classes are large enough for students to play as a group, yet small enough for beginners to receive the individual attention they need. Parent attendance is required. It's a fun, collaborative environment!

Students will learn:
  • the proper way to hold their instrument and bow, while beginning to play their first notes
  • basic ensemble and listening skills
  • to apply their instrumental technique and musical knowledge through Suzuki repertoire and Latin folk music
New Suzuki- Alegre Strings families are required to participate in a training class (dates TBD).

Note: Children should not attend the training session, but a fun musical activity will be available to those who have parents attending. Children are not required to attend this activity.
