VIOLIN - VIOLA - CELLO-BASS
Like all private lessons at SNJ Studio of Music, violin, viola, cello, and string bass lessons are tailored to the specific requirements, objectives, and pace of the individual student. We offer a comprehensive string curriculum individualized to each student’s needs while incorporating core principles. Our faculty utilizes elements of different teaching methods to help our students explore classical music, popular songs, and even improvisation. Beginning students start with the fundamentals – learning parts of the instrument, proper finger placement and bow hold, rhythm, reading music and learning simple songs. As they advance, students progress to gradually more challenging exercises as they master advanced bowing technique, correct intonation, position shifting, vibrato, and phrasing while learning more significant repertoire.
SNJ Studio of Music strings students gain valuable performance experience through semi-annual recitals and our annual solo competition. Members of our strings faculty are all orchestra teachers in the Omaha area schools and are also active performers.
