*During most weeks the Theory classes will take place along with both Violin Group Classes and Kodaly Group Classes. However, there are differences. The Thursday theory classes begin a week earlier than the Violin and Kodaly classes. And both Thursday and Saturday Theory classes end earlier in the year than the Violin or Kodaly classes. Also, for those in violin classes, there are several "special event" weeks which may have slightly different times and/or rooms, and will NOT have Kodaly classes. On these special event weeks the Theory classes will be held, but the times will be changed to accomodate the special activities.

Group Violin Program 2016-17

The year includes up to 30 weeks of instruction including a Halloween party, 2 play-ins (at Christmas and at the end of the year), and the annual violin workshop in the spring. Additionally, students will participate in the OSA's Christmas concert in December and the final Violin Concert early June.

We are continuing to have teachers build classes based on their knowledge of the students and their ages and experience. Parents please note that when you register your children for Violin + Kodaly classes, you simply choose "Novice" or "Intermediate" for the level, and the Violin and Kodaly teachers will place students in the appropriate class. The yearly calendar and the class schedule (subject to change based on enrollment) will be available for download:
