Knowing how to play a musical instrument with confidence is a fulfilling and enjoyable ability. But, if someone were to ask you, “If you could pick from any instrument and instantly know how to play it, what would you pick?” odds are that a violin would be among the top choice. But although violins are surrounded by a romantic aura of mystique, many people think that it’s too hard, too expensive, or just plain too difficult to learn how to play this well-known and much beloved musical instrument. However,at St Therese’s all our Year Two students are learning to play the violin at no expense to families.
The benefits for our students are amazing! The violin impacts positively on our student’s memory and attention span and that musical training improves reading skills, language processing, speech and a variety of brain functions. At St Therese’s we are seeing our students gain self-discipline and not to mention that learning to play the violin can build reliance, self-esteem and self-awareness.
Have the best week! David
