Improve your skills from the safety of your own home.
I believe it is within everybody's ability to play Violin or Viola. One does not need to possess "talent," but simply the desire to improve and the willingness to work.
What Suzuki Violin teaches us...
Music is fun!
- problem solving, creative thinking and self-discipline
- it is OK to make mistakes - it's part of learning
- we all learn differently
- we can do things that seem difficult by putting it into smaller pieces
- to be part of something bigger than ourselves by playing music with our friends
- to overcome our fears and perform for others - those watching us are hoping for our success!
- to set goals and enjoy the road it takes to get there.
- hard work and determination can lead to great things!
