Do you teach the violin to children 7 to 11 years?
Would you like a way of teaching the violin that is stress free?
|Product Details||Dancing Bows is a tried and tested method for teaching the violin from the age of 7, using open string patterns and tunes in duet form. Dancing Bows and Ringing Strings, is NOT a mass, regimented "by rote" learning method. It is tailored to the needs of the individual pupil. Ideal for individual or small group tuition. Whether peripatetic or in private practice, with Dancing Bows you give children from 7 to 11 years old, a fully structured musical education. Dancing Bows incorporates Kodály principles of rhythm, ear training and inner hearing into the childrens' lessons. Above all, your pupils will learn to be relaxed and stress free. Without careful training from a young age in listening, violinists will always be lacking that essential ability to play their violin in tune. With Dancing Bows your violin students not only learn to "hear" what they are playing, but do so without the stresses and strains commonly associated with playing the violin. Your pupils learn to love music and the violin. They grow up together, so to speak.|
