South Miami Violin teaches classical violin as well as fiddle styles including Bluegrass, Irish, and Folk. With an emphasis on technique and practical implementation of theory, students build a foundation enabling them to practice more efficiently and effectively. Students also begin playing immediately in their first lesson, and start learning different songs within the first three weeks. At the beginning, students start by developing their ear-training skills, with a focus on intonation and song memorization. With time, attention is also given to sight-reading music as the student’s ear continually develops.
