Do you have absolutely no experience the violin?

Did you play violin more than 10 years ago and you feel like you’ve forgotten everything?

Welcome to class.

Group classes are an affordable way to learn violin in a social setting. Normally, group violin classes require you to have experience in the violin before starting, but not here! Absolutely no prior experience is needed for this class. We mean it. The less music you’ve studied, the more you’ll fit in. When we say Absolute Beginner, we mean it. Most students in this class have never touched a violin. Yes, really.

Whether you’re learning violin to gain a talent, for the love of music or to finally pursue (or get back to) the passion you’ve neglected for so long, this class will get you started on the right foot. No long-term commitments necessary. Come try it out and have some fun!

Level 0: Adult Absolute Beginner Group Violin Class

Description: This is a 10 week violin class semester for students who have never played before, or who have only played for a few years and have been away from the violin for 5+ years. Playing will begin on the very first day with the help of an assistant teacher delivering personalized attention throughout the class to those who may need it. We keep it simple and fun with exclusive beginner exercises, songs and duets found only through our studio. Class size is limited to 8 students max.

Prerequisites: Have a violin (click here to rent from us). Sign up. Clip your nails. Show up. That’s it! We will provide the music. Still not sure if this is the right level for you? Read our class comparison here or schedule an in-person meeting to see which is the best fit for you.
