This course is designed for students who have finished the Suzuki Book 1. We focus on preparing students for their RCM exams by focusing on the technical aspects of the violin, the posture, etudes, and also pieces from level 1 -3 of the RCM repertoire. Students are usually not motivated to learn the technical aspects of the violin even though the technical aspects are the most important aspects of playing the violin. In this class, we will work on the technical parts in an encouraging and motivating environment.
