This weekend, I hosted a small studio class for some of my younger students. We worked on playing a couple of tunes as a violin quartet, which each student playing his or her very own harmony or melody line. Next, each of the students performed a short piece for the others and the listening students practiced giving positive feedback to the performers. it was an excellent way for them to prepare for the upcoming recital. The kids had a great time listening to each other play and learning to play in a small ensemble. It was a blast, and I can't wait to schedule the next group lesson!
