Free Violin Lessons For Children Offered

ViolinLessonsBased on the Suzuki Method

Do you have a child interested in music? A free program is offered this fall in Carefree to teach children who are interested in learning more about music. Christ Anglican Church in Carefree will offer first-level violin lessons for children ages seven-12 years old.

Classically trained violinist Laya Field of Cave Creek teaches the course. Field is also an opera singer who began playing the violin at the age of eight.

“My approach is organic. The child needs to first develop a relationship with music and then their instrument. If a child has that love and desire to play music, we want to encourage and nurture it,” says Field.

The new course for young beginners will be based on concepts and teaching theory drawn from Kato Havas and the Suzuki Method. The course also teaches performance skills.

“The children in violin class will perform at our Composers Concert in the fall,” adds Field.

Classes are free and held each Saturday from 10-11:30am, beginning August 3, at the Dorothy McGinnis Hall of Christ Anglican Church, 35500 North Cave Creek Road, a half mile north of the corner of Carefree Highway and Cave Creek Road in Carefree.

Instrument rentals are not included, but a limited number of scholarships are available. Music program donations are accepted. Class size is limited. Pre-registration is required. For enrollment information, call 480.993.6147. Private, advanced courses are also available. The course is a part of an expanding family music program that began last year under the direction of Fr. Steven Dart.
