  • Violin Lessons

    Scherzo Music School has violin lessons for all! Lessons are once or twice per week, and structured in 30, 45 or 60 minute periods. Scheduling is flexible during the summer and winter and enrollment is ongoing throughout the year.

    Receiving a music education through violin lessons at Scherzo Music School can be beneficial even for children as young as four years old. The violin lessons at Scherzo Music School do not follow a "one size fits all" approach; rather, we design each student’s approach based on the student his/herself, drawing many plans from two of the more popular violin teaching methods - Suzuki and Traditional. Scherzo music school’s program includes rhythmic development, ear training, reading, singing and a proper technique on the instrument. We encourage students and parents to set goals in order to see the progress of each student. The goals can be participation in recitals, peer performances, or taking standardized music exams like the ABRSM.

    We know how difficult it is to choose the best approach when it comes to violin lessons; the right teacher and schedule. We, the teachers at Scherzo, work as a team, so when you enroll at our school, you are in the hands of a highly qualified team to oversee your musician's education. Our school coordinators are available before and after to help you with the enrollment process, as well as the progress of your child. Violin lessons can be combined with individual piano lessons or with our Music Discovery Class for children between 3 to 5 years old.

    Intermediate to advanced and adult students are encouraged also to actively participate in other musical interests such as singing, ensembles, and performances. Students in the violin program are encouraged to participate in their school's orchestra. Students might also opt to follow a standardized music exam curriculum like the ABRSM exam.

  • The Violin

    The violin is a small, four-stringed instrument that is played with the dominant hand bowing the strings while the non-dominant hand fingers notes on the fret board. While most commonly played in orchestras and classical music, the violin has found its way into many genres of music, such as rock, pop, and folk music. The violin comes in various sizes to accommodate the size of the student. It is important for a student to practice on an instrument with the correct size.

    Scherzo Music School sells and rent violins of all sizes. Scherzo Music School exchanges instruments, without any additional cost, as students grow and progress. For more information, read about our Rental Program or email us.
