Faq's About Violin Lessons

Grades are not forced upon students as we can teach you without the use of them to acheive your goals. However, all of our teachers can take students through grades all the way to grade 8 and beyond. Grades can be a great way to learn as it gives students something to aim for and we only teach recognised syllabusses such as ABRSM and Trinity. A mixture of the two ways of learning is gnerally preffered by most but it's completely up to you.

Every instrument at first is a little difficulst to learn and the level of difficulty certainly shouldn't put anyone off. For children there are 1/2 and 3/4 size instruments to aid with this and for adults learning later in life doesn't mean you won't be able to do it. If you don't try you'll never know :)

You will find our prices on the prices section of this website. Most beginners are best off with a half hour lesson intially. All the payment for lessons go to your designated teacher usually by monthly bank transfer. After your intial lesson, all Lessons are payable a month in advance and your teacher will provide you a contract with their particular rules on cancellation and payment etc.

This is always tricky to say as guitar is slightly more difficult at the early stages. We generally recommend around 7 upwards in terms of children. The best thing to do is contact us for more details and organise a trial lesson.

Possibly the most asked question by adults. Our oldest student is 84 years if you're middle aged there's no excuse! Our teachers specialise in teaching adults just as much as they do children. Our advice is to just have a go and we are sure you'll be pleasantly surprised how quickly you'll be able to pick things up.
