Violin Program

Violin Program

The violin program under the direction of Mrs. Lori Franke has about 80 students enrolled, Kinder-5th grades. Each is taught in a private or semi-private lesson once a week. All of the students gather once a week in a group class situation according to their levels.
The students in the program may continue in the lessons for as long as they attend ADB.
All children are given an equal chance , and the ones not selected are placed on a waiting list.
The students are instructed in the Suzuki Method, or Mother Tongue, which follows the philosophy that every child can learn and that talent is not inborn. At first the students listen to a recording of the music which they are learning, and they learn to play by ear. As students advance in techniques, note reading skills are taught. Most children advance rapidly through positive reinforcement, games and fun!

Harvest Festival and Carnival

Each year, ADB hosts a Harvest Festival and Carnival.  The proceeds of which benefit the Arts at ADB - specifically the Violin Program, ADB
Performance Group, and Arts Alive.
