Youth Violin Ensembles-bkup


The MAVA Youth Violin Ensembles help musicians expand their minds through classical music. Your child will learn the following from our MAVA Youth ensembles:

Organization, Discipline, Respect, Dedication, Self Awareness, Focus, Perseverance, Self Expression, Self Confidence, Work Ethic, Problem Solving, Responsibility, Realizing one’s potential, Creativity, Leadership, and Pride.


The Parent, The Student and The Teacher will work together in a positive environment to help The Student achieve success to play the violin.  This is called The Triangle of Trust.  The Teacher instructs The Parent to teach The Student proper practice techniques to utilize at home.  To maximize the learning process The Parent will learn to play the violin to help create a learning relationship between the Student and Parent.  The Teacher evaluates both The Parent and The Teacher at lessons to help The Student achieve success on the violin!


MAVA’s audio recording, internet media and multimedia resources help engage performers in a rapidly changing technological age. Our instructors are composers, songwriters, active performers in Broadway musicals and local orchestras. We continue to help young performers engage in performance opportunities around the area. We believe in simulating real life musical experiences in our week to week rehearsals to produce the most well-rounded students.


MUSIC 1 (5 classes):

Parents will learn to teach their child the basic fundamentals of violin. Students will learn the proper techniques of posture and sound production on the violin.  Parents and Students are split up within the same room into two groups: Parent Groups & Student Groups with Mr. Alan Aranas. Parents and Students will begin ear training to supplement fun learning on the violin.  Parents will learn materials ahead of students to gain constant interest of the student during practice at home.

MUSIC 2 (5 classes):

*Prerequisite: must attend Music 1

The next level is MUSIC 2.  Parents and Students continue posture and sound production training. At this stage the student will begin formulating short pieces of music.  Parents have already learned these songs in MUSIC 1, which in turn helps the student excel faster.

MUSIC 3 (5 classes): 

*Prerequisite: must attend Music 1 & 2

This stage of our violin education prepares all students for concert performance on stage.  Students will rehearse while reviewing posture, sound production, and memorization.  Students will perform in a group ensemble at the RECITAL. Students who attend the MUSIC 3 class are required to perform at the RECITAL.
