Here’s how to get started…
1: Choose A Violin
If you’re already playing the violin, you can skip this step! But if you’re starting to play for the first time, we’ll help you to find a good instrument to play on before you start. Having a good violin that’s well set up will save you months of frustration!
One of our very first eLearning modules will guide you step by step through this process, to make sure that you’ve got the instrument, bow and shoulder rest that’s right for YOU. We’ll lay out the key things you need to look out for when choosing an instrument, and suggest which violin to consider… and which to avoid!
2: Take an Introductory Lesson or Class
Our renowned Introductory Violin Class was designed as part of research at the Royal Academy of Music, and has helped hundreds of violinists – many of whom had never played before – to get off to a great start with their learning. In just 3 hours, you’ll learn all the key ideas you need to be playing and practicing the violin, and we can even lend you an instrument too.
Already play the violin? Take an Personal Coaching session at our studio in London, UK – or if you’re elsewhere in the world, connect with us via Webcam for your first lesson. By the end of your first session you’ll have a clear plan for your practice, and you’ll know exactly what to do to start working towards your violin-playing goals.
3: Select A Membership Plan
Our great-value membership starts at just £11/month (about $18USD) and gives you access to an enormous wealth of resources, including sheet music, technical exercises, exclusive studies, a video library, aural and theory software, comprehensive libraries, and much, much more.
But most importantly, once you become a member of ViolinSchool you’ll have immediate access to our cutting-edge eLearning Programs that will give you a clear, step-by-step guide for your learning. Whether you’re studying with us, with a local tutor in your area, or by yourself at home, our top-quality eLearning (developed from our research of the last 300 years of violin pedagogy!) will guide you through the violin’s many complexities so you can start achieving real results right away.
4: Choose Tuition Options
We offer a wide range of tuition, both online and offline. Personal Coaching and Group Tuition are available in our Virtual Classroom in the members section of our website. And in our home city of London, we run a popular program of offline classes and events, including our twice-annual Violin Orchestra. We also maintain a studio in Central London, UK (near Victoria Station) where Lessons and Coaching are available every day of the week.
Our highly experienced professors provide Personal Coaching for every age and experience level; from beginners, young children and advanced amateur players to graduate professionals and teacher training.
5: Start Learning!
Our experienced Professors and Learning Advisors are here to help you whenever you need guidance or advice. We’ll support you by phone, email, video… or come and visit us in person!
