Viola & Violin Teachers
Violins are widely represented in string and symphonic orchestras, chamber orchestras, as well as being played solo. Violin teachers of our music school will help you succeed in pursuing your personal goal and prepare you for our internal bi-annual solo recitals, exams or competitions, or continue to play violin for your own pleasure without the pressure of ever performing on a stage. Many students take annual Royal Conservatory of Music Exams in levels 1 – 10 which we specialise in. Many other students wait until they reach very high levels 9 or 10 to take formal exams. Many students choose not to take any exams and follow their own steady progress. No matter what journey you are on, violin teachers of our school are here to help you progress. Once you fall in love with the sound of the lovely melodies, dramatic steady progress of your playing and technically challenging new techniques of violin playing, there is no going back. There is always more to be learned. String players have one advantage of joining our own small string orchestra. That’s after they master the basics.
Alternatively to violin, you may start learning the viola, or switch from violin to viola at any time during your studies. You may become to prefer it over the violin. All our violin teachers can also teach viola. The clef is different, violin uses treble clef and viola is using alto and treble clef, so reading music needs to be taught in order to read viola music. Viola has a mellow and smooth sound, one string is lower than on violin. Viola is slightly bigger in size, but can be adjusted for smaller hands, too. The sound board of viola produces deeper sound of a lower register. We need violas in orchestra, as they are a very important bridge between violin and cello sounds.
