Time Travel

HSQ violinist Yaira Matyakubova teaches Time Travel, our Music History Class. Students travel through time and space with music, listening, and locating places of origin on the globe, journaling, and drawing what they hear.


Discovery Orchestra

The primary focus of Discovery Orchestra is on mastering the fundamentals of violin playing. They will play selections of music from The Suzuki Method, as well as Bela Bartok, fiddle tunes, Jazz, Soul and improvisation. The goal of the class is to prepare students to enter into the community of music haven not only as strong instrumentalists, but as well rounded, intelligent and articulate musicians.
