I'm an old hand at teaching violin now and know what works and what doesn't. Of course it takes a bit to ascertain where the students talents are, and try to try to approach a variety of issues with an encouraging attitude. I like seeing a student perform something I've taught them, but really I just enjoy imparting my knowledge on the subject of music and violin/fiddle playing. I know all the pieces that are "winners" but am good at creating a good technique as well as an interesting repertoire. I use a combination of materials including Suzuki School and customized songs that fit the students abilities without frustrating them....

Nathan K. says, "If you are serious about improving as a violinist/musician, I can't think of anyone more qualified than Mr. Han-Gorski. He is a man of great wisdom and life experience with a resume few could match, who studied closely with Jascha Heifetz, toured the world as a soloist, and also led many world-class symphonies as concertmaster. He understands music and the violin in a way few do being directly linked to the 19th century violin giants: Wieniawski, Vieuxtemps, and Joachim. He will challenge you to play your very best and then demand even more from you. You will find yourself significantly raising your standards in practicing, listening more closely to your own playing, learning how to analyze and interpret music, and develop a solid technique in service of the music. The teacher you choose to study with will have a tremendous impact on your practicing, performing, musicianship, and life. I once had a teacher who attended Curtis and Juilliard, and I've learned more about music and playing the violin in a few lessons with Mr. Han-Gorski than studying for a year with this other teacher. Mr. Han-Gorski will not only help you to improve as a violinist, but he will show you how to think and understand music so you can take what you learn and apply it. No matter if you are a beginner or professional, he will show you the way to mastery and true musicianship." Read more

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?
