Violin Outreach Program

We are excited to announce the launch of our new VOP (Performance Foundation and Enrichment) classes, starting in September 2024. The Violin Performance classes will explore musical performance and refine mastery strategies and skills. Our expert instructors will teach all skills, including bowing, intonation, and expressive dynamics, to develop individual artistry. Ensemble performances teach students teamwork, communication, and musical knowledge. The curriculum instills a profound awareness of stage etiquette, encompassing stage presence, audience interaction, concert preparation, and professional politeness. This immersive experience makes students skilled violinists and poised, confident performers who can succeed in various musical settings.

The VOP continues to be taught in a group setting, offering students the chance to volunteer, perform in the community, collaborate with peers, and further develop their violin skills.

Please note that the Performance Foundation program is open to beginners to elementary-level violin students.

 Performance Enrichment program will be available for intermediate and advanced students only.  

 

 Dates:  September 10 to December 13, 2024 (Different classes have different starting and ending dates)

Fee per student*:   $380 per student per term 

Please email the office if you wish to put your name on the registration list to save a spot as our spaces for the program are limited. Acceptance into the program for all levels is subject to an assessment by the teacher to determine which level is best suited for the student.

 

As this program sets high standards in performance skills, RMS reserves the right to refuse registration to any students our teachers deem unsuitable to join the class.
