I'd like to think my service stands out for a few reasons. First, I love working with people, and I love meeting families of the students I teach. I feel that it is important to have a good working relationship with both students and their parents, which I believe makes the learning process even more enjoyable. I also love seeing progress and celebrating when students make progress, even if it is just a small step! The thing I enjoy most about teaching is watching students grow in their playing ability, and as humans! I love seeing students perform in our annual violin recital, and I love seeing their faces when they realize how much they've ...

Kerry L. says, "When I had my first session with Paul, I struggled with the simplest of old time techniques. Even double stops stumped me. Paul's patience and thoughtful, well-planned instruction seemed tailored to my specific needs almost from the very beginning. He considers what the student player wants to achieve, identifies quickly their current skill level, and designs a plan of action that will elevate their playing ability week over week. Of course, you have to put in the practice! One of my favorite aspects of lessons with Paul is his knack for being able to explain concepts in multiple ways until I'm able to understand, imitate, and repeat the method or technique. To be honest, I'm only 2 months into my instruction with Paul, but I am super excited about my future as a fiddler under his tutelage. And I didn't even mention his extensive knowledge about the tunes! One would not be able to find an all-around better instructor for old-time Appalachian fiddling than Paul Kirk. " Read more

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?

His patience and ability to understand that all fiddlers are different.
