Always wanted to try a violin but didn't know where to begin? This workshop is the perfect starting point for potential fiddlers of all ages. Bring your own instrument or rent one from our neighbor, Allegro Strings Violins. We'll cover basic care and maintenance, parts of the fiddle and how they work, how to find the notes, and playing simple tunes with lots of repetition. Recommended for ages 8 and up, but all are welcome. 

If you are interested in renting a violin for this class, please call Allegro Strings Violin Shop at: (360) 671-8059
