I want to first give you a little bit of information about me. I am a 14 year old that has been playing the violin for only 5 years. I have been playing in a very well known locally youth symphony for 3 years, and am currently participating. I would walk your child through the steps of first carrying the instrument, playing, handling, reading music, identifying music notes. They will need to provide their own instrument. I recommend you go to Riverton Music. They will help you find the right size. It will cost $10.00/ hour, and the sessions will go for one month. Please call me if you have any questions or are interested. Thank you.
