What if my violin breaks, or needs repair?
My child's school already has an Instrumental String Program which starts in Grade 6 —why should my child enroll in TSS?
In the world of string instruments, starting at age 12 is quite late. Ideally, a child would be introduced, and begin practicing at 4 years old. If they start learning how to play the violin a few years before the mandatory String Program, they will have an advantage, musically and personally. Already having a strong foundation and good technique will allow your child to really enjoy and excel in playing orchestral pieces, rather than just starting to learn the basics.
