Come join us for our 4th Free DEMO VIOLIN Class Live on YouTube on Thursday, June 24th at 6:00 p.m. EST

Welcome all beginner students to our upcoming FREE DEMO VIOLIN class on YouTube Live! In this introductory class, we hope you’ll fall in love with VIOLIN and Music making with Ms. Rachel!

So please mark your calendars for June 24th at 6p.m. EST. and enjoy a FREE Beginner's Violin Introductory Lesson. We encourage you to share the Free YouTube VIOLIN Class  link with your friends and family!

From Bryan, Texas, Rachel Warden began her musical journey at the age of six. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Violin Performance from the Moores School of Music.

She has played in masterclasses with revered musicians such as William Preucil, former Concertmaster of the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra and with Kenneth Goldsmith, Professor of Violin at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.

Rachel studied with Andrzej Grabiec, worldwide renowned violin soloist and conductor, for four years during her time at the University of Houston’s Moores School of Music.

During her studies, she remained an active performer playing in numerous symphony orchestra concerts, operas, and ballets. Since her graduation, she has been teaching and performing in both New York City and Texas.

She taught at Vivaldi Music Academy where she mentored students who performed at The Kennedy Center, The Royal Academy of Music, and Carnegie Hall.

In New York City she currently teaches private lessons and after school music programs with schools throughout the metropolitan area. Warden has 5 years of teaching experience with both violin and piano, and she is passionate about encouraging students of all ages and levels to foster a love and passion for music.

The class will be an introduction to the world of violin and its basic principles, starting with the parts and strings, posture, bowhold, and ear training. Students will observe familiar songs played on violin and learn the basic mechanics to playing "Hot Cross Buns" and "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star".
