Mrs. Ann Tart
Welcome to my school webpage!
I teach beginner violin to 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students at the following schools:
Meadow School, Four Oaks Elementary, Benson Elementary, Dixon Road Elementary, McGee's Elementary, South Smithfield Elementary, West Smithfield Elementary, and Selma Elementary.
We meet for one class each week during enhancement time. At the end of the year, usually in May, we have a small concert to showcase the students and all they have accomplished.
Parents are responsible for purchasing a violin and lesson book for their child. Some great beginner violins and the lesson book can be found at amazon.com. I recommend a 3/4 size violin. Use this link as a guide: Beginner Violin This amazon page also has the book and a music stand for an additional cost.
I will let you know when classes begin. I try to allow two to three weeks for parents to purchase the violin and lesson book, so classes will probably begin mid-September.
