At the String Instrument Petting Zoo , students including adults who are interested can hear the violin, viola and cello instruments, hold the instruments and experiment with making a sound on them. Just holding a string instrument answers questions for some students. How big is it? How heavy is it? Where do your hands go when you play it? We stress, though, that making a sound isn’t as important as wanting to make that instrument’s sound.
Once you’ve had a String Instrument Petting Zoo experience, you can learn more about private Suzuki string lessons or an Adult Beginning Orchestra class.
