The Violin Choir 1 is a group class for violinists in their second-third year on their instrument and is a supplemental class for students taking private lessons. Students will be using their whole bow, multiple notes in 1 bow (slurs), and multiple stops in 1 bow. The class will play A major scale, D major scale, and eventually the 2-octave G major scale.
