Winter String Class - Intermediate Violin & Viola

Harris Shilakowsky, Violinist, Music Educator & owner of will be teaching a performance class for violinists and violists. This is for intermediate players of any age. You should already know how to play a couple of scales & first position pieces, however, the music we choose to play will be defined by the abilities of the participants.

We will play duets, learn new techniques, solve musical problems and learn how to shift and slide easily into new positions. We’ll discuss how to get great tone & how to get better at sight reading.

• Bring your musical questions to ask the professor. If you need help with your instrument, don’t be afraid to ask!
