They say Violin is the closest sounding instrument to the human vocals. Its ability to display emotions is above any other instrument; thus it is one of the most popular instruments studied in our generation. At Hanway Music School, we offer violin lessons for beginner and advanced students in toronto.
For our beginner students: we offer two teaching methods. The Traditional method of note reading OR the Suzuki method of ear training and listening.
For our advanced students: we would further develop their music skills and techniques by incorporating German, French, and Russian methods, as well as preparation for RCM Examinations or orchestra auditions.
Homework is assigned weekly which includes practising of: songs, technique, and theory.
Apart from these, every year at Hanway Music School we host a collective student recital, masterclasses, and charity concerts within the city of Toronto, to give our students opportunities to perform on stage. From this, students may gain collective experiences performing on stage and as well as an insight to other peers performance styles. [/su_animate][/su_column] [/su_row]
