Beginning Violin Pod

For 3's and 4's

For children ages 3-4 and their caregivers, participating in a beginning pod will give them a joyous and family-centered start to their musical journey. We will sing, clap, dance, and imagine our way into a new journey with beginning violin. Utilizing curriculum from SECE (Suzuki Early Childhood Education), Wee Violin, and Montessori, class sessions will incorporate listening, singing, movement activities, and violin technique. There will be a mixture of group activities and one-on-one time with each student.

​Participating in this beginning pod gives students full access to South Bay Suzuki, including mixed-level group classes, recitals, and special studio events. After a session of beginning pod, students will be ready to transition into private lessons! Registration is now open for Spring 2024 - join the interest list to be contacted and see if this is the right fit for you!

Establishing a daily musical habit is an essential part of beginning violin. Parents/caregivers are expected to create a musical home environment for the child and to practice musical activities and assignments from class with their child each day. Students/families who practice class activities five or more days per week will experience the most enjoyment and growth and get the most benefit possible from this violin class experience.
