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?

Nita K.
Diane is a kind and patient instructor. She is extremely knowledgeable in training the Suzuki method. My son started lessons with her in 3rd grade and continued until he transitioned to percussion in middle school. Diane fostered my son's love of music performance at a young age, and he was just part of the ISSMA Class B Marching Band State Champion. I highly recommend her as an instructor!

Since the beginning of our lesson, she instantly recognized my weaknesses and helped me improve throughout our lessons. I really enjoyed working with her because she knew how to fix my weaknesses, help me improve my violin skills and more. She is also very patient, kind, detailed, and an amazing violin player and a teacher. I was very lucky to have her as my teacher.

John is extremely professional. We have a 13-year-old with mild special needs, and John has been patient with him, encouraging him but allowing him to move at his own pace. We've seen tremendous growth in our son over the past year, and cannot recommend John highly enough. His talent and passion for teaching music is evident in everything he does, and we have been very pleased with our overall experience.

Ben has been a fantastic violin teacher for my 8 year old. He is a very talented violinist and has a knack of relating to and working with young children. He has been teaching my son for about 3 months and my kid is usually looking forward to the class every week. Ben challenges and motivates him to improve every session. From the get go, Ben's communication has been excellent. He lets us know well in advance any upcoming schedule changes and is always on time for the class. He is always inviting us to concerts where he is playing to create an excitement (all of them are free to attend). Overall we are very glad to have Ben teach our son and would high recommend him.
