**Parent meeting: Sep 13, 5:30pm for all classes.**
***NEW Start Date: Group Violin classes will now begin on Mon, Sept 27.***
Fall recital TBA.
Group classes are perfect for students and families to “try-out” the violin with a less intensive way of learning technique and musicality than CSPA’s Suzuki Program or Traditional Private Lessons. Students remain in a class or are moved based on the instructor’s assessment, which means some students may be in the same class for more than one semester or year.
**Semester only registration is available for $160 per semester. Please call us to register for semester only.
