We’ve done extensive research over the years to ensure our lessons thoroughly highlight role models of color in string music. Now we want to share that knowledge with those outside the IAH community. This thread is now digitized as a free link for those who want to learn and share with their children, friends, students, etc.

Learning to play a string instrument requires a lot of time, energy and commitment. Developing good technique from the very first lesson allows students a more seamless progression and faster rewarding experience at each lesson. Our nurturing instructors emphasize a strong and holistic foundation in either violin and viola including healthy posture, beautiful tone production, left hand technique, bow fundamentals and ear training. Although lessons are a hybrid of theory-based, Orff and Suzuki pedagogy, the curriculum is constantly evolving to fit each student’s specific needs.
Learning music theory is an integral part of becoming a well-rounded musician. This is why we offer theory as its own discipline as well as allocate time during each instrumental lesson for students to master the world of notation. Our music theory curriculum covers the staff, clefs, note names, rhythms, rests, intervals, meter and time signatures, key signatures and dynamics. Students will also be taught about scales and chords (harmony), melodies, phrases, musical forms and vocabulary.
