Description

In this course you will learn all of the basic skills of how to play a viola. A viola is different from a violin in that it is a bigger instrument with a deeper, richer tone. Though the viola is held the same as the violin, it reads a different musical clef (the alto clef) and shares the same strings as the cello. If you love the way the cello sounds, but don’t love its large size, then the viola is for you!
In this course you will learn everything from holding the instrument and bow, to learning how to play all of the notes on all four strings in 1st position, to learning how to use a tuner, and much more. At the end of the course, show off your new performance skills by playing along with a few fun videos and learn a few beginner level pieces. After completing this course, try your hand my other courses so you can continue to expand your skills playing the viola. This course is appropriate for any and all age levels, for anyone that wants to begin learning how to play the viola. Students will need their own instrument, a shoulder rest, rosin, and a wipe cloth for optimal success in this course.
Students are encourage to rent instruments from a local instrument store, but if they feel the need to purchase an instrument, please do so from a music store. Instruments purchased from online websites that sell items other than musical instruments (items where you can purchase food, clothing, or cleaning products) are NOT trustworthy sites for purchasing a musical instrument.
