The violin is a metaphor for lifelong learning:

  • Mistakes are the best teachers
  • Break difficult tasks down into the smallest bite size components
  • If you can play it slowly, then you can play it fast.
  • Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard.
  • Learn how to hold the instrument without pain.
  • Avoid tension and injury causing mistakes
  • Music is a universal language. Relax- there’s only 8 letters.
  • Reading music is a skill that is transferrable to any instrument or voice type.
  • There’s a creative voice inside you the world wants to hear
  • Find the confidence to share your talents.
  • Overcome your fear and stagefright


  • Our ever growing repertoire of songs has something for everyone.
