Q:What age groups do you teach?
A: Violin lessons are available to anyone regardless of age. Having said that, 5 years is the earliest I will accept students for violin tuition. If the child is younger than this, I recommend they join an early childhood music school such as Cottage Music in preparation .
Q: How long do lessons go for?
A: This varies depending on the student. For advanced students, the lessons are usually 45 mins or one hour. For beginners aged from 5-7, it is optimal to have more than one lesson per week, until they are set-up. These lessons usually last 20-30 mins.
Q: What should I bring to my first lesson
A: Obviously a violin is a good thing to bring, however, please discuss with me first about obtaining an instrument. I can recommend brands and sizes. It is important to start with a good instrument!
Q: Do you teach AMEB material?
A: Indeed I do, and I am also an examiner for the AMEB , so I have a fair idea about the standard and expectation required.
Q: Can I have a trial lesson?
A: Yes , a trial lesson is always a good idea.
