View Music Lesson Tuition and Policies
Ages: 4-17 and Adults
Length: 30-, 45-, 60-minute
Meets: Weekly, scheduled individually
All viola lessons are taught as private, one-on-one music instruction and are available in lengths of 30, 45, and 60 minutes. We suggest kids and teenagers begin with 30-minute viola lessons and progress to longer lengths as your teacher recommends. For adults who have some previous experience, we recommend starting with 45- or 60-minute viola lessons.
Because each student is unique in their aspirations, lesson plans are tailored to each student by taking their goals, experience, and learning pace into consideration.
KIDS & TEENAGERS
Violas come in an array of sizes and our faculty are happy to help find the right size for kids. Because we understand that young children need extra encouragement, we strive to be patient, understanding, and make viola lessons fun and engaging. Lessons always include work on fundamentals – such as posture, instrument position, bow and left hand technique, and music reading – and our teachers will mix in fun songs and games to keep young students engaged in lessons.
Teenage viola lessons will focus on performing repertoire from all musical periods. More advanced bow and left hand techniques such as spiccato, shifting, and vibrato will be covered, as well as note reading, listening, and theory.
Adult viola lessons will focus on performing repertoire from all musical periods. Advanced bow and left hand techniques such as spiccato, shifting, and vibrato will be covered, as well as note reading, listening, and theory.
We believe that finding the right teacher is an important first step in music education. To make sure this happens, we begin all new students with a trial lesson, which is a single lesson that can be scheduled and paid for without requiring students to register.
Registration secures the same day and time for your lesson each week with your teacher and enrolls you in automatic monthly billing. Tuition is billed on the 1st of each month at a flat rate, regardless of how many lessons occur. We make billing simple by including holidays and scheduled breaks in our price.
