Violin Lessons Content
Our violin teacher will have a lesson plan for each of your violin lessons. They will cover all of the knowledge and skills you need to develop into a violinist. How good you become will be up to you!
A violinist needs to learn general musical skills. This includes music theory, aural skills, rhythm, syncopation, pitch and harmony and reading music. There are also violin specific skills including posture and technique, dexterity, bowing and plucking techniques, correct fingering, finger independence and strength development.
During violin lessons, you will cover musical theory, scales, arpeggios, modes, exercises and technique. We will teach you how to play songs including reading the music.
The played violin is actually held up by the chin and shoulder. The left hand does not support the instrument, but is only playing the notes on the fingerboard.
We will teach you to play notes by bowing or plucking the strings. The violin teacher can also teach you different playing techniques including vibrato and glissando. As the violin is not fretted, it is very important to develop your sense of pitch and learn correct positioning on the fingerboard.
The violin is an incredibly sensitive instrument and is very sensitive to room acoustics. It will readily produce scratchy tones. So the aspiring student must be patient.
Violins come in different sizes. It is possible to buy a smaller sized violin for the young for young beginner.
Your guitar teacher can prepare you for VCE, ANZCA or AMEB examinations. They can also prepare you to perform at our recitals. We can teach all styles and would like to teach you how to play the songs you love.
