I love to teach. I think the violin is the best instrument. It is real pleasure to see how a student develops understanding and love for music. I try to share my experience with the students so that hopefully they find the same passion and joy in the magic of music. At first, I would like to understand the needs of my student; musical, technical, intelligence level; ability to communicate. Then I will try to explain my approach to teaching violin....

I am an Emmy winning songwriter from my work with PBS, with a BILLION hits on YouTube for my songs. I am an accomplished instrumentalist as well, having released some dozen albums, and I play guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and tenor banjo. Gypsy jazz is one area I specialize in, but I also play Folk, Americana, Rock, Blues, Country and other styles. I also have a PhD in Writing, and I am the author of a number of books--children's literature, books on neuroscience, fiction, cartoons, and more. I enjoy seeing people learn new skills and progress to become the songwriter or musician they want to be....

Your Violin Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do violin lessons cost near me?

Violin lessons cost $30 to $80 per session for classes starting at 30 minutes long or up to 60 minutes long. A private violin teacher costs $50 to $80 for an hour. A group lesson costs $20 to $30 each time.

You can expect to pay $190 to $360 every month when pre-booking violin lessons.

Are violin lessons worth it?

Violin lessons are worth it if you aspire to enhance your skills rapidly and perform for audiences. Expert tutelage in the violin can aid in cultivating appropriate techniques and tackling challenges efficiently, thus accelerating progress.

Learning violin without private feedback is extremely difficult and takes much longer.

How many violin lessons do I need?

You need as many violin lessons as it takes to reach your personal goals, depending on how good you are now, how much you practice, and how qualified your teacher is. Most folks need to take violin classes regularly for many months before they can play a basic song or read music.

Generally, it takes about 3 to 6 years to start playing many different songs quite well. If you want to play like a professional, it often takes more than 10 years of ongoing practice and tutoring.

How long are violin lessons?

Violin lessons are 30 minutes long for beginners and up to 60 minutes long on average. Extended lessons are only for advanced students, will cost extra, and are subject to the teacher's availability.

What age is best to start violin lessons?

The best age to start violin lessons is between 4 to 7 years old at the earliest, or whenever you have a strong enough focus on learning and can hold the instrument comfortably. Children need to exhibit sufficient physical coordination and concentration before they can start violin lessons.

However, adults are capable of learning and deriving pleasure from playing the violin, irrespective of their age.

How do I find a violin teacher near me?

You can find a violin teacher nearby very quickly by browsing the listings here on the Lessons website. Alternatively, you can ask for affiliated private teachers at local music stores.

  • Before hiring a violin teacher in your area, always remember to:
  • Compare the prices of at least 3 violin instructors.
  • Read what others have said about the teachers on Lessons and Google.
  • Ask them which of their past students you can talk to for a reference.
  • Get a written agreement and a lesson plan before the first lesson.
  • Follow a plan to pay a little at a time until you feel sure the teacher is right for you.

What questions do I ask a violin teacher before hiring?

Here are some questions to help you find the best violin teacher:

  • How many years have you been teaching the violin?
  • What age group of students do you prefer teaching?
  • How many degrees in music do you have, and do you play professionally?
  • Can I try out a lesson for free or with a discount to see if it works for me?
  • Do you have violin rentals at your school if I don't have one at home?
  • How much do I need to practice to reach my goals?
  • What books or sheet music should I buy?
  • Can you change how you teach to help students with special needs?
  • What kind of violin music are you best at teaching?
  • Should I expect homework to memorize?
  • What should I bring, and how long does each class last?
  • Can I get a copy of our class schedule, agreement, and how to pay?
  • What happens if I need to cancel a class due to an emergency?
  • Can I pick some of my favorite songs to learn?

Taylor has been a fantastic addition to our daughter's violin journey. Having her come to our Boulder home has been incredibly convenient. Taylor's approachable demeanor and effective teaching style make her an excellent fit for beginner students. We highly recommend her!

Laena is a talented violinist and an awesome educator. She started teaching the viola to my son six months after he had joined the middle school orchestra. He started learning the instrument mostly through online school and on his own, but after he started taking lessons with Laena his progress has been amazing. It is amazing how good he sounds now! She fixed bad habits he had acquired and taught him more advanced techniques. She instilled in the kid a passion for music that we didn't know he had. He ended up joining the Boulder youth orchestra (GBYO) thanks to her mentoring and coaching during the audition process. And he also became the first violist at his school's orchestra. Laena is a great partner to us parents, always communicating about progress and flexible with scheduling needs. It is a joy working with her.

Rachel is an excellent teacher and accomplished violinist. She has been teaching and inspiring my daughter for 7 years. She adjusts the lessons to work with each student to help keep them engaged and motivated. If they are feeling stuck, she helps to get them back on track and excited about learning new things. She encourages the student to pursue things that are interesting to them whether it is a desire to transcribe a pop tune they want to play, composing an original piece, learning traditional fiddle tunes or playing duets. She meets the students where they are and has a great presence while challenging them to grow. We are so happy to have Rachel as a teacher!

We love our instructor, Louis Racicot. He is so patient with my kiddo. I'm not sure if he had experience with instructing a child with autism...virtually, but he's doing wonderfully well! He is a professional. His instruction is simple. He breaks the music down in bite size pieces and allows my kiddo to succeed. He's the best!
