Adult String Orchestra Class with Ruth Banwell

  • Knapton Musik Knotes 2475 Milton Avenue Janesville, WI, 53545 United States (map)

This class covers the basics of playing on a string instrument (violin, viola or cello). The class progresses through the book “Essential Elements For Strings” Book 1 and culminates in learning a few simple songs as a group. You will learn the fundamentals of performing and build your performance from there. You do not need to have any previous music experience.

This class will meet once a week starting Thursday, September 14th.

It is important to attend all classes and to practice each lesson outside of class.  It takes at least one year to learn the basics of this instrument and up to 4 years to learn all the techniques to apply to a wide range of string literature.
