When you think of the violin, you might think of classical music. Although the violin is still thriving today in the world of classical music, it can be heard in many other forms of music from bluegrass to country, jazz, folk, and gypsy styles. Our string instructors teach all styles of music, from learning to play by ear to reading music. If you want to play classical music or the fiddle, we have a teacher for you. We'll show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but we will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons.
Violin students can be as young as 5 years old, or younger with the teacher's approval. Keep in mind that violins can come in as many as 8 different sizes, and you'll want to choose a size appropriate for the student's body size and arm length so the student can hold and play the instrument comfortably. If you do not yet own a violin, many of our new students take their intro lesson without a violin so that their instructor can assess the size of violin they'll need and make recommendations of what to get and where!
