Violin Day

Welcome to GVSU Violin Day, 2017

Greetings, and welcome!

This is the first time we are attaching a special day just for violinists to our very successful String Leadership Day weekend.  It is my hope that many violinists from throughout the state will be able to take advantage of this day designed to give progressing violinists more information and inspiration about playing their very special instrument.

If you wish participate in this exciting event, please contact me directly at . PLEASE CONTACT ME NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 10!  There is no charge and I would encourage you to have your director or private teacher also nominate you now for String Leadership Day which will be on the following day, October 21.

You can download the bowed Violin Choir Music below.

Looking forward to meeting you on October 20!

Dr. Gregory Maytan
