Music shops that sell violas can usually also work out viola rentals. This is best for smaller, short-scale viola that are designed for small children. For adults, either used or new violas will work just fine. The only factor to keep in mind is that used violas are sometimes sold as-is, meaning it may not be in the best condition. Our instructors are familiar with good viola maintenance techniques and can be of assistance.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons at your home - a time saving solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
No particular style of teaching is taught by each teacher. All students and teachers are different, and therefore each lesson will be different. All teachers will teach the student how to read music, handle the instrument correctly, and advance their musicianship. Teachers will also work with students on any particular goals they may have. If a student is interested in a certain style of teaching, we would be more than happy to find a teacher who works with that method.
All skill levels are welcomed for Musika lessons. We provide everything that is needed for an adult student to be successful with their instrument. By providing an in home lesson option for busy schedules, and customized lesson plans, adult students of all ages are able to find success within their lessons.
Our earliest recommended starting age for viola is 4, although exceptions can certainly be made for a younger student who is capable of handling the strings properly and who has sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. A teacher can help you decide which size instrument to choose depending on the age and height of your child.
