Come join us for a hands-on demonstration of our beginner violin class for children ages 5 – 9. Not only will our demo class have fun music games and a mini-concert, it will also give your child an opportunity to try playing a violin. This is a great way to introduce your child to music at a young age while helping them begin a life-long journey in playing the violin. In case you didn’t know, the Lakeland Youth Symphony has provided musical education and performance opportunities for young musicians in the Mountain Lakes area for 60 years! Today, it offers violin lessons for beginners (ages 5-9) and four progressively challenging levels of orchestras for all string students. The Lakeland Youth Symphony is a not-for-profit organization and meets at the high school. For more information or to register your child for the demonstration class or for a group this fall, please email email@example.com or call (973) 402-6010.
