Aaron L. says, "Lessons with Jared were exactly what I needed. I'm in my early 30s, and when I first sought violin lessons early in the pandemic, it had been a dozen years since I had played regularly in an orchestra and a couple more since I had regularly taken lessons. I thought that, with more discipline and maturity and some personal experience as a teacher, I was ready for an exacting, perfectionist approach and methodical repetition of scales and etudes, and a big emphasis on musical theory. I was surprised when we started simple and moved quickly through a variety of pieces. I had been used to spending months on certain pieces, but Jared wasn't nitpicking, and we played together a lot. But what I soon realized is that this is really what I needed. I found my love for my instrument was soon restored, and that I was choosing to practice as an outlet during the pandemic. I was practicing more than ever, and enjoying it. And as we moved onto new pieces, Jared gradually introduced more difficult music with new technical challenges, including scales and etudes. He mixed in folk and popular music as well, and was open to my suggestions of pieces to play. I can see and hear that my range and skills have grown noticeably: I am now more comfortable in second position, I'm playing in more challenging keys, my ear has improved. Importantly, I'm playing my violin better than I ever was, and ready to invest in upgrades to my instrument. Jared is a patient teacher and a kind person, and is accommodating with scheduling for his adult students as well as with online and safe, socially distanced lessons. I also observed a little of him working with kids, and it is clear that he's great with young students. If you're an adult and are looking to revive your love for your instrument and make real strides, I highly recommend Jared for your violin lessons." Read more

I believe that music is made to illuminate the whole creation and drama of life in a way that leaves us more appreciative and thankful, brave and kind, compassionate and understanding, caring, and committed to bringing truth and kindness to our families and friends, our countries, and our environment.

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?

I appreciate how Louanne has worked to develop my daughter's musicianship over the past 6 years. She covers standard violin repertoire and studies in a rigorous way, but also gives my daughter a voice in working on music that is fun and interesting to her. She cultivates a warm atmosphere while encouraging diligent practice and performance.
