The violin and viola are versatile instruments with a long and venerable history not only in the Western classical music tradition but in European folk music, American folk, bluegrass and country and both traditional and modern jazz. Electric violins and violas can be found in jazz, fusion and pop music.

Whether you aspire to make a contribution as an integral part of an orchestral string section or imagine yourself taking a fiddle solo at a hoedown, our violin and viola teachers can guide you through the challenges of learning and help you achieve your very best.

Taking violin/viola lessons with an experienced teacher can help you develop the correct foundation, avoid bad habits and get you up to standard and playing the music you want to play. Our teachers will tutor you in the required music theory, musicianship and support you in developing your own style.

For students interested in grades, we offer preparation for ABRSM and Trinity exam boards.
