FAQ's:

Q: How old do you have to be to start playing the violin?

A: You can start as early as you would like as long as the student is old enough to comfortably hold the violin. Typically 2-3 olds and up can do this. Now they make super cute small violins (1/64th size and up) to fit the toddlers. The benefits of starting your children early on the violin is numerous. My youngest student to date is Three years old. I have had students from 3 years to 72 years. My lovely 72 year old student learned to play the violin as therapy.

Q: How much do violin lessons cost?

A: One 30 minute violin lesson can range from $25-65 The price varies depending on a number of factors including location, the experience and education level of the teacher, and if the teacher comes to you. 30 minute lessons are a good fit for beginners and small children. For more advanced students 45 minute or 60 minute lessons are recommended. Send me a message below to get my reasonably priced rates.

Note: If you have lost your job or have reduced work hours due to COVID-19 let me know.. 

Q: How fast will I learn to play?

A: It all depends on how committed you are. The more you practice between lessons the faster you will learn. Generally in a few lessons you will learn to play simple songs. 

Q: Can you teach me to play songs?

A: Absolutely. Many of my students love playing pop and hip hop music on their violin.

Q: When can I do a recital?

A: It usually take about one to two years to be ready to perform for your friends and family.

Q: How often do I have to practice?

A: 20-30 minutes twice a week is advised. If you can devote more time, you will improve faster.

 

Q: Can I take lessons if I don't have a violin yet?

A: Yes, you can! With the current COVID-19 pandemic, I have a couple of new students who started virtual lessons without a violin on hand. They are learning music theory, rhythm, listening and music appreciation which builds a strong foundation. These students will be able to progress much faster once they are able to actually buy a violin and learn how to play because they are already familiar with the basics.
