Welcome to the Registration for the Teen Beginners Online Class at Conclave, 2022!
This FREE beginners’ class for teens ages 13–18 will introduce basic skills on the viola da gamba. Students will learn to play Renaissance tunes in a supportive online setting. Local VdGSA chapters will make every effort to provide beginning students with instruments to use for this class.
You will join other teens in this class learning remotely via the Zoom platform. Tuning pitch is a’ = 415Hz, which is a half-step lower than an A on the piano or other modern instruments. Class time is in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to get set up!
