Hello! I am a performer and educator, graduating from Boston Conservatory in spring 2023 with a Bachelor of Music in Viola Performance. I teach viola and violin students with the goal of guiding significant musical improvement and providing a well-balanced musical education. I develop each individual student's curriculum based on exactly what they need and what they want to get out of musical study, and regularly check in with them to help meet their goals. My students develop skills that help them outside of the musical world, such as personal accountability, drive, and mindfulness. I teach primarily viola students, but I also teach early ...

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?

Taisiya is an excellent viola teacher. She tailors the lessons to your goals and makes sure to emphasize your strengths while providing careful feedback on your weaknesses. She is great at explaining concepts and can always provide a nice demonstration of techniques while explaining them well enough to try myself. She also puts a lot of effort into organizing studio recitals so that students can showcase what they've been working on every few months.

My daughter has been learning violin with Jacob Litoff for two years. She started at 5 years old. We started in person and soon had to shift to remote learning due to COVID. At this young age, it needs a lot of patience from the teacher and the parents. Learning remotely makes it even more challenging. Jacob has been extremely patient with us. He's also flexible whenever we need to reschedule. He has taught us 3 Suzuki books and pieces from a bunch of other books. He has also helped us with several songs that we wanted to play at some events and we got to advance our techniques more quickly through these flexible curriculum. I strongly recommend Jacob for your kids.
