The viola is awesomely unique. This often overlooked instrument resides between the violin and cello in the strings family. For those who want to stand apart from the crowd, the viola is a great choice!
At Boise Music Lessons, our Violists get a healthy dose of:
- Classical methods for developing technique
- Fiddle methods (yes, even violists can fiddle!) for improving collaboration
- Scale and arpeggio based improvisation
- Orchestral instruction for school players
As with all instruments, at your viola lesson we’ll provide a foundation of note reading, functional theory, ear training, and musical collaboration and communication.
Did you know the viola reads in alto clef instead of treble or bass like most other instruments? This clef is used so infrequently by other instruments it is commonly referred to as “viola clef.”
