Serves Charlotte, NC
I am a Suzuki trained violinist with 18 years of public school teaching experience. The Suzuki method was developed in Japan by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. He believed that children should learn to play an instrument as they are learning spoken language. Throughout my career as a public educator, I have tried to hold on to the idea that my job is to create a nurturing environment where students can hear and create music on their own. I am passionate about teaching and sharing the gift of music with my students. I will start students as young as 3 years old.

Welcome! My name is Drew Preston and I have 8 years of experience teaching violin, viola, cello, ukulele and beginning guitar. I hold a bachelor’s degree in music education and a violin performance certificate from UofSC. As an educator, I use my student’s strengths and interests to guide them on their musical journey. I believe that reading sheet music and playing by ear are equally important to one’s musical experience. I primarily teach classical music, but enjoy teaching pop, bluegrass and jazz music as well.

Your Violin Lessons questions, answered

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?
