Lessons Information

Once your child has had their 4th birthday, they can start to learn the violin or

viola. Pupils can start at the age of 3, but this is dependent on each individual child.


Pupils are recommended to have a regular weekly time slot for their lessons.

Please get in touch to find out more about availability.  


The duration of your lesson is usually related to your standard.

Beginners are advised to have 1/2 hour lessons to start with, which can then be increased as your ability develops. For intermediate to advanced students 3/4 hour and hour lessons are recommended.
