From orchestras and mariachi to chamber groups, access ensembles of many shapes and styles.
The violin program is led by Samantha George and Wen-Lei Gu, Associate Professors of Music.
Discover the many paths open to Conservatory graduates.
The violin program is supportive but challenging, where you'll collaborate with your fellow musicians while pushing them and yourselves to be better artists. Innovative teaching techniques and individualized instruction will prepare you for performances in the Lawrence Symphony Orchestra, chamber ensembles, and beyond. You'll perform in weekly studio classes and give and receive written and aural feedback that will help you grow your confidence and develop your stage persona.
Special violins, like two made by contemporary luthier Douglas Cox and an 1680s Andrea Guarneri violin, are available for student use.
