        Violin Basics | The Power of Music: Unit 2

        Explore a music program that teaches children to play the violin as young as kindergarten by using paper violins first in this half-hour video from The Power of Music. The program collaborates with kindergarten teachers and stresses movement, emotion, relevance, novelty, and pattern or familiarity. Another effective technique is motivating youngsters with levels of mastery, a concept they know from video games. El Sistema illustrates the power of ensemble learning and the belief that every child is a musician from the moment he or she chooses to be.
