group cello classes
The goal of these classes is to give our cello students, particularly those who take private lessons only, an opportunity to meet and make music with other young cellists without the weekly structure and commitment of a Suzuki, or Traditional, Music Program. Scale and technique work, note reading, basic music theory and history, and, of course, working through and performing pieces together will take place during the classes.
All classes are held out of Backlane Studios located at 9 Neepawa Ave. in Roncesvalles: https://backlanestudios.ca/. All classes are one-hour in length as follows:
· Suzuki book 1: 10 – 11 am
· Suzuki book 2/3: 11:15am – 12:15pm
The timings for both the winter and the spring cello performance parties are:
· rehearsal: 9:30 - 10:20, concert and party: 10:30 - noon
There are 7 classes in the school year, plus two cello performance parties, which are a culmination of each term’s work (solo and group performances). This makes a total of 9 sessions, divided into two terms as follows:
Dec 8: Winter performance party
May 31: Spring performance party
FULL YEAR: $260/student (save $10)
FALL TERM ONLY: $120/student or WINTER TERM ONLY: $150/student
It is possible to register for each term separately; however we strongly encourage you to register your child for the full year. This makes for a truly cohesive learning and social experience for the students. If you choose to register for the full year, the fee is $260/student, which reflects a savings of $10.
In order to ensure that these cello classes can run smoothly, students are asked to commit to attending, registering and pre -paying for all selected classes before they begin. Payments must be made in full and will not be prorated for missed classes. Payment is preferred by Interac email transfer (to firstname.lastname@example.org) but can also be paid by cheque (made out to Tova Rosenberg). Receipts are issued upon payment received.
