Who Should Join String Orchestra?

String Orchestra

Join our orchestra at your own personally chosen time. 

When you reach a point in your studies when individual study enables you to play most of the easy repertoire, look for the ways to expand your violin exposure by joining our orchestra. Here you will get familiar with listening skills, observing pauses, learning how to breath in time of music, feel the beat and get musical together. 

We are more than certain that there are people out there in Oakville and Halton and Peel region who don’t know about us, or don’t think they are good enough to join. 

To that I say, enough already! You are good enough to join and now is the right time. 

To you, dear adults, let me say a few words of encouragement: No matter what your personal situation at this stage of life, if you are missing playing classical music because you grew up hearing it often, or you wished you did and never had a chance, to you I say, take a leap and improve your skills by trying a rehearsal or two, take up music lessons and then try for orchestra, simply make that first step. 

Here at Klaudia’s Music Studio, we are friendly, warm-hearted and the most tolerant group of people you can imagine. We practice together weekly, with a goal to perform for our own enjoyment. We play in our own understanding of perfection which by no means need to be perfect. 

If you think you want to be a part of something as amazing as our welcoming orchestra, you have the opportunity. 

For young students, you have the opportunity too, to join a younger version of our string orchestra.  

Orchestra is here for you, so you can feel the power of music new life experience, filling the void in your musical world. 

We really sincerely look forward to meet you. 

FAQ's +
Home Practice Tips


How do I begin? 

Fill our registration form online, so we have all your contact information. In there, write us a note describing what you are looking for. Pick an instrument based on your personal preference and we will match you with the teacher on a certain day and time of the week. Then we set up an initial lesson time for you. After you pay for the lesson, all is set. Registration fee is only charged after the initial lesson and when you decide to sign up for weekly lessons.

What if I don’t have the instrument and need to rent one?

We have selected instruments for rent, starting at $20/month.

What if I have a child who is not decided?

If you have a small child who is undecided, attend a Junior Class for very young children. Children 6 and up can also observe the Junior Class, or observe some other instrumental class by appointment.

How can I help my child to decide which instrument to pick?

Bring your child to a live music concert. We recommend classical music concert, or some of our internal music recitals we put on every December and June. Show your child variety of musical performances and styles. What resonates with them is the right choice. For us at Klaudia’s Music Studio is important to know what style you like. Classical music, light classics, popular contemporary music, heavy metal music, movie music, or anything else.

Do you only teach classical music?

We based our violin, piano, guitar, cello and double bass teaching on classical music, but not exclusively. For example, student can play a new music piece once the technique allows it. And we also have rock guitar and drums lessons that are not based on classical music at all. It all depends on instrument, teacher and student which way you want to lean towards.

How do I make sure the interest lasts?

Sign up for a few months. After this time you will have a better understanding of what is involved.

Do all students have to take the Royal Conservatory Exam?

No. Teacher determined the readiness and it is only recommended for students who take music lessons and music education very seriously. Preparations are extensive and involve much more than just playing a musical instrument.

Do you offer a trial lesson and do I need to have an instrument?

Yes, for 1/2 price of the regular lesson. One-time initial trial class. You may take another trial lesson on different instrument. We provide instrument for trial class for free.

Do you rent instruments?

Yes. Violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, keyboard, electric piano.

Do you come to students home to teach? 

No, we only offer lessons at one of the Studio locations.

How young can children begin playing an instrument?

General music introduction starts at the age 3.5 in our Junior Music Class. Summer Camp is for children 5.5 years and up. Instrumental playing is recommended by Klaudia’s Music Studio at the age 5 or up, with exception of guitar where we recommend starting at minimum 8 years old.

Can I start learning instrument at any age?

Home Practice Tips

Our approach is to integrate all aspects of music into one beautiful, ear pleasing experience. Importance of home practicing is the key. The studio encourages daily home practicing from its students.

A word for parents of children: we encourage you to set and devote a prime part of their day to practice a musical instrument. First thing in the morning, if they are early birds; or 1-2 hours after they come home from school if that’s their prime attention time; or 1-2 hours after dinner if they stay up late. Feed your child nutritious food 1-2 hours prior to practicing and try not to offer sweets of any kind. This spike in sugar levels will make them tired for practicing. Keep giving them healthy snacks only and water to drink. Once it is time to practice turn off all electronic devices in the house. And we mean it. Even your buzzing phone on silent mode is a huge distraction to their sensitive and all aware senses. Give your child undivided attention for the time of practicing, especially at the beginnings when the instrument feels new. Help them to your best knowledge. A receptive audience is often all that is required to encourage a child to practice. Sit and listen, try not to interfere too much with teacher’s instructions. Reward them with a hug, sticker, small toy, but avoid sugar treats. Then eventually the child will want to practice alone, in private. This is a great step toward independence. Let it happen, but don’t forget to keep setting time for home practicing, set reminders and continue the rewards so they feel appreciated. Each child needs to hold accountable for his or her homework. Both teachers and parents as role models have an important part in a child’s advancement and only when sufficient effort is put in, will we see great results. If there is too much resistance from child it is time to talk and reconsider a different instrument, or a completely different path. On the contrary, if there is a great enthusiasm and practice reminders are not needed it is time to discuss the future exams with the teacher and get properly informed. Besides of instrument, theory lessons will be needed to develop all skills necessary to succeed in music. It is an investment into one’s future. 

Adult students should also devote time to home practicing to progress in their musical development. Home practice gives teachers important weekly feedback and guides both student and teacher to produce a more customized learning routine.
