  • Join us for a week long intensive course for violin in the beautiful Laudon Palace and its gardens in the outskirts of Vienna.
  • The aim of the course is to support the participating children in deepening and practicing their fundamentals of playing the violin and to apply them with greatest joy in making music together in small and bigger groups.
  • The daily program from Monday to Friday consists of classes in smaller and bigger groups.
  • Activities: Camp counselors provide the children with creative indoor and outdoor activities to support the developing brains and bodies with the necessary exercise and play.
  • All children from 5-11 learning to play the violin are invited. Since the course is mainly based on the Suzuki approach, repertoire will mainly be from that school, complemented by further adequate repertoire. All repertoire will be communicated in due time before the course starts.
  • A maximum of 36 children will be accepted.
  • Program: Group lessons, exercises for bow and left hand, “Üben üben – Practicing practice", ensemble pieces. With selected pieces from the Suzuki Violin School repertoire Books 1-4 and additional pieces.
