VIOLIN

Our violin instructors are highly qualified. They have teaching experience, warm personalities, and most importantly, passion for teaching. We accept students from 5 years old and teach all ages, and levels (beginner, intermediate, early advance and advance). We help students/parents to choose the right size violin based on students’ age and parents’ financial affordability. Each lesson is tailored based on students’ needs and goals. Our students benefit from one-on-one lesson setting, which allows them to have the instructor’s full attention. Students explore traditional repertoire across all periods; renaissance, baroque, classical, romantic, 20th century and contemporary. Students are encouraged to perform in our seasonal showcase events; recitals, recordings, performances, CM, RCM exams. Our goal is to motivate our students to practice and constantly improve their skills. Most importantly, we inspire our students to have fun and enjoy their lessons in a safe and professional environment.
