Starting Age: 4 and Up
One-on-One Music Lessons
30-Minute, 45-Minute or 60-Minute Music Lessons
All viola lessons are taught as private, one-on-one music instruction and are available in lengths of 30, 45, and 60 minutes. We suggest kids and teenagers begin with 30-minute viola lessons and progress to longer lengths as your teacher recommends. For adults who have some previous experience, we recommend starting with 45- or 60-minute viola lessons.
Viola Lessons for Kids and Teenagers
Because we understand that young children need extra encouragement, we strive to be patient, understanding, and make viola lessons fun and engaging. Lessons always include work on fundamentals – such as posture, instrument position, bow and left hand technique, and music reading – and our teachers will mix in fun songs and games to keep young students engaged in lessons.
Viola Lessons for Adults
Adult viola lessons focus on performing repertoire from all musical periods. Advanced bow and left hand techniques such as spiccato, shifting, and vibrato are covered, as well as note reading, listening, and theory.
