On Assignment | Grace Notes Music Studio | inRegister

Back in February, I attended a group violin class with inRegister writer, Jen Bayhi-Gennaro. Like some freelance assignments, I was unsure what to expect out of the class, but I was excited to be in attendance.

As a child, I took violin lessons and spent one night a week at the Suzuki Building on the University of Memphis South Campus for group classes. During those classes, you were grouped with other children who were at the same skill level as you, and you practiced the music you were learning as a team. … To this day, I can play a Vivaldi concerto perfectly because I was in the same class for two years in a row. (Hi, taking it a little slower than everyone else.)

This group class was very similar, and I reminisced about my time as a young violinist as Neil Nelson conducted the students and his wife, Genny, played the cello along with the group.
