FLEX Note/Rhythm Reading Supplement for Violin/Viola

These sequential lessons use Joanne Martin’s I Can Read Music for Violin or Viola curriculum and are dedicated to note and rhythm reading intended as a supplement to private violin or viola lessons.  This lesson supplemental consists of 15-minute one-to-one virtual lessons on Saturday and a pitch and rhythm challenge assignment due midweek.  After review, the instructor will provide video encouragement-feedback on the assignment during the week.  The next Saturday lesson will review/reinforce the concepts/skills as needed and progress to the next set of pitch/rhythm concepts/skills.  Your child will gain confidence as they strengthen their understanding of fundamental musicianship skills on their instrument!
