Vera's Violin Programs

"informances" for your school,  school, string/music group or general audience. 


Tools of the Trade

Hammers and screwdrivers; stethoscopes or computers, paintbrushes or ballet shoes--- all professions have special tools of their trade.  String players carry bows, rosin, mutes and other tools along with instruments-- but also have an entire tool box of techniques and skills to create the colors and sounds of the music.  A "mini introduction" to the violin, and any sport or skill that requires special skills for the trade.
