Join the Viola Studio of Dr. Lauren Hodges (Assistant Professor of Viola at the University of Florida) for a weekly scale and technique class over the summer months.  We all need some extra support, community, motivation, and accountability to establish healthy routines and keep practicing in spite of all of the cancellations.  We welcome:

·       Past, present, and future members of the UF viola studio

·       High school violists preparing for college auditions and/or All-State auditions

·       UF Viola Day participants (past and future)
