Violin lessons with Ms Stark

Jayne Stark is new to St Bon's this year, following the retirement of Mrs Somerset.  She comes to us from Bristol Plays Music.  Ms Stark teaches on Fridays in our St Christopher Room, and provides small group sessions for 30 minutes. 

Children can start violin lessons from year 2. 


Children do not use violins in the first few weeks of starting lessons so that they can concentrate on learning the correct fingerwork before applying it to the instrument.  When your child needs an instrument Ms Stark will let you know if we have one available for you to borrow (for the first term) or whether you will be required to purchase a violin.

It may also be necessary for you to purchase files and music through Ms Stark.  She will contact you directly about this.
