Learn By Doing

Our approach to violin lessons is all about getting students to start playing violin from day one! It doesn’t always mean playing full-blown songs but depending on the student’s age, we like to get them to start actually experiencing what it feels like to play the violin and begin to experience how fun and exciting it is.

Beyond the Books

Our instructors go far beyond the nuts and bolts of playing the violin such as notes and songs. We do make fundamentals the anchor of all of our violin lessons but we also make sure we give the students time to actually apply it to the violin and learn about the fun of making music and playing violin!
