April 6: Classical Violin Lessons for Children in Carefree
Christ Anglican Church in Carefree announces a new 10-week first-level violin course for children wishing to learn more about music. The classes are part of an expanding music program for children and families at the church that began last year.
The classes will take place each Saturday from 11 a.m. to noon, April 6 – June 8, at the Dorothy McGinnis Hall, located on the church campus, 35500 N. Cave Creek Road, just north of the corner of Carefree Highway and Cave Creek Road, in Carefree.
Classes are $15 each. Several scholarships are available. Instrument rentals are not included, but are available through Valley of the Sun Violin, in Tempe. Classes are based on concepts and teaching theory drawn from Kato Havas, and the Suzuki Method.
Laya Field, of Cave Creek, who began playing the violin at the age of eight, teaches the course. Field is a classically-trained musician, opera singer and teacher. Field began teaching children violin at the church last summer.
Class size is limited. Pre-registration is required.
