Suzuki Violin Performance Groups
Suzuki violin students participate in weekly performance classes at their level.
Students build group playing skills and develop their technique. The group also prepares works for performance at LCMS concerts.
Students can develop their skills by learning the basics of ensemble music, the discipline of playing in a section and the requirements of following a conductor. Students from string programs outside of the school are welcome to register and are required to audition to determine placement in the appropriate level.
Students who are studying symphonic Woodwind and Brass instruments at advanced & senior levels may audition for orchestra.
The LCMS Fiddlers meet each Wednesday to prepare lively programs for various community events throughout the year. Fiddlers from the community are welcome to join the ensemble and learn a wide variety of fiddle and pop music. Auditions may be required to determine placement in the appropriate level.
Advanced Violin Fundamentals
This class focuses on technique (scales/arpeggios), ear training, sight reading, and orchestral excerpts. It is appropriate for advanced level RCM exam preparation, and for honing technical basics.
Viola students of all levels and ages are welcome to join this new group to further develop their technique and work on group performance skills.
