Why Violin Lessons?

Violin, although it is not impossible, is significantly easier to learn assisted. From the specific angles one must employ, and the peculiarities of holding the bow, having someone there to help you remarkably increases the success of the student. A large part of playing the violin is playing in a group such as the orchestra or string quartet. Lessons with an instructor helps provide experience in an extremely important aspect of your instrumental growth.

As with all of the lessons at Calliope School of Music, our string lessons also provide training in music theory to aid the student in properly understanding not only the “how” of music but also the “why”.
