What you'll learn in this kids music class:

Children learn how to play short pieces on the cello in a fun group setting. Musical games and exercises are used to develop proper technique and improve music-reading skills.

Materials: Cello, bow, case, rosin, chair/stool that is proper height for the child to use at home, endpin stop or strap, Cello Suzuki Book 1 and c.d.
  • In this group class, students will learn basic technique, focusing on maintaining good posture and hand position, as well as naming parts of the cello and how to care for the instrument.

  • We will play games that build rhythmic and aural skills as well as introduce important musical terms.

  • Having a parent or guardian present and taking notes in the group lesson will be very important for the child as they will need to guide their child's practice during the week. It is strongly recommended that a parent or guardian be present in the group lesson every week.

  • By the end of the semester, students will acquire the ability to play short songs together as a group using Suzuki book 1 and other supplemental pieces provided by the teacher. Regular listening to the recording of Suzuki book 1 is also highly recommended.
