Strings are the soul of an orchestra and the violin is a lyrical and versatile solo instrument that can be heard in every style and genre of music. This workshop is your opportunity to take a beginner class on this gorgeous instrument. You will learn how to hold both the instrument and the bow while learning to create a beautiful tone. This demonstration will leave you with a basic understanding of what it takes to learn to play.
