Based on the philosophy and teaching methodology of the Suzuki Method, Sojourner students begin their music instruction in kindergarten and continue through fifth grade. Violin instruction is a regular feature of the model as a way to access and develop each child’s musical intelligence and to build and develop the character of every child to see and create beauty in the world around them.

Parent volunteers are needed in the Violin room (no experience needed)! If you can help out, please contact parent volunteer Keturah Kastendick. For questions regarding violin, contact Sojourner’s Violin Teacher, Jan Manselle.

Violin Loan Program

Students in grades first through fifth are also able to “check out” a violin for a week at a time in order to practice at home. To participate in the Violin Loan Program, please return a signed Instrument Loan Agreement to the school.

For questions regarding the Violin Loan Program, contact our parent volunteer, Annette Smith.
