Violin, Fiddle, & Viola

St Peter’s Community Arts Academy offers lessons in both the Suzuki and Fiddle style. The Academy also offers a “String Explorers” class for young children.

Suzuki violin lessons are offered to students (ages 3+) and at all levels. The Suzuki method developed in Japan by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki is based on the premise that all children are born with a high potential for learning, and given the opportunity and proper environment, any child can learn to play an instrument. Students in the Suzuki program learn to make music using the “mother tongue” approach, which focuses on listening and imitating, just as they learn to speak. Parents in the Suzuki violin program have vital roles in the educational process. A parent is required to be an active participant in the lesson and at group class and to help structure practice at home. The weekly group classes supplement the private lessons and are an essential part of the Suzuki program. The group classes give students opportunities to experience the joy of playing together and for one another. Lessons are scheduled individually with Suzuki-certified instructors.

The new Fiddle Program celebrates a folk style of violin music. As performers of various styles —Cajun, Bluegrass, Celtic — fiddlers play together as a community. Kit Fallon’s group classes invite teens and adults who want to try the fiddle for the first time, and musicians with fiddle experience, who seek to hone their skills. Tailored to individual needs, as well as group wishes, classes will include hands-on instruction, ear training, music notation, and material about fiddle cultures around the world. Performance progress will be showcased in regular String Recitals for the students who register for successive quarters.

Rental instruments are available at discounted rates through String House in Rochester.
