Youth Programs

Our programs are much more than learning to play fiddle. As well as honing in on their playing skills and techniques, kids and teens will learn about leadership, group dynamics, working in a team, and being on stage.


In keeping with the delayed school opening after the winter break, we have decided to delay the start of our youth programs - please stay tuned for a new start date.

The registration form for our Winter 2022 youth programs can be found HERE. Details of the various programs can be found below. If you have any questions about which group your child should sign up for, please contact us at aurorafiddle@gmail.com

Fill out the form below to become a member of the Aurora Fiddle Society for the 2021/2022 fiddling season! Please note: This is our general membership form.

NOTE: The Performance and Beginner youth programs are designed to compliment and expand on a child's existing skills and instruction.  The First-time youth program is designed to introduce your child to the fiddle, and to provide the basic skills to jump-start their learning experience. We strongly recommend that your child receives individual fiddle lessons alongside these programs.
