VIOLIN LESSONS FOR BEGINNERS AND CHILDREN
Our instructors are experts at teaching beginning violin students. You’ll start by learning simple melodies and single string technique. You’ll then progress to note reading and more advanced techniques such as vibrato and shifting. Our teachers are comfortable with the most popular beginner violin methods.
We can teach students as young as age 5. Our teachers will focus on materials that are appropriate for young, small hands and bodies such as easy melodies, etudes, and songs that the student wants to learn.
