Book 1 Group Class: This group class is for violinists working from the beginning of Suzuki Book 1 to Minuet 3 and who have not yet performed their Book 1 recital. Students must be able to perform Song of the Wind in private lessons to participate, but comfort and confidence at Allegro is highly recommended before participating in Book 1 Group Class.
Book 2 Group Class: This group class is for violinists working who have completed their Book 1 recital but have not yet performed their Book 2 recital. Students should be comfortable performing through Musette in private lessons before joining this group class. This group class will draw on all material from Suzuki Books 1 and 2.
Book 3+ Group Class: This group class is for violinists who have completed their Book 2 or Book 3 recital, but have not yet performed a Book 4 recital. Students should be comfortable performing through Dvorak Humoresque with shifting before participating in this class. Book 3+ class will draw on all material from Suzuki Books 1, 2, & 4, but will frequently draw on material from Book 4 and supplemental repertoire.
Concerto Class: This group class is for students age 10+ who are capable readers above a Suzuki Book 3 level. Strong emphasis is placed on technical development and reviewing etudes or duets. Each lesson term, students will learn, rehearse, and perform a complete concerto.
