More Information About Violin Lessons

The sizing is important, especially when it comes to children, as they will usually start out with a smaller instrument than is considered the adult standard. When you are beginnin the renting process it is important to have the student present so they can be fit for the right size. Our teachers will also be able to guide you in your instrument choosing.
When you choose in home lessons, you are choosing the most convenient way to add music to your life. By having the instructor come to your home you are saving time, money, and energy! Not only is this a convenient option for busy schedules, but it allows you to learn your instrument in the familiar, and comfortable space of your own home.

Children can start violin as early as age 4. Though there is a standard size for violins, they also come in smaller sizes which can be used by small children. As the students grow, they can move up in size, and the instrument can grow with them. Being one of the smallest members of the string family, the violin lends itself well to small hands. Any teacher, or music store professional can help you choose the correct size. During violin lessons, children will begin to learn how to handle the instrument correctly, read music, and develope their overall skills as a musician.
