Beginner Adult Group Classes Starting!

NYC Violin Studio is proud to announce that First Day Beginner Adult Group Classes will be starting in March! This class is geared towards complete beginners on the violin who have no prior experience with the violin.

A number of students have come to us for private lessons because their group class was not delivering what they expected. What sets this class apart from other classes is the comprehensive learning experience. We take a modern approach and give you a wide and varied skill set. Some other classes focus on Suzuki repetition only, but not all students want to learn classical music only and they don’t all want to play the same song over and over for weeks on end. Our classes provide variety and keep the classes fun and interesting with a performance at the end to invite your friends and family to.

If you’ve been dreaming of playing the violin because you never have or because you used to when you were younger, take this opportunity to join the fun now.

Winter Concert 2017!

The NYC Violin Studio Student’s Concert 2017 is being held on Sunday, December 17th at 6pm at Roy Arias Stages/777 Theaters, located at 777 8th Ave (cross street W. 47th St).

You can now buy your tickets in advance here. You can also purchase tickets in advance in person with cash. Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.  Each student is allotted three tickets until Nov. 26th, at which point the remaining tickets can be purchased in any quantity from anyone, on a first-come, first-served basis.

I’m really looking forward to the concert this winter because not only is it at a dedicated performance theater, we also have some new students to showcase, a whole extra group that will be performing, and a group that keeps getting better and better every semester!

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Here are my star high goals for the Early Intermediate Fall 2017 class:

Week 2

Game of Thrones to measure 7

Week 3

GoT up to measure 21

Week 4

GoT up to measure 28

Week 5

Week 6

Week 7

If all targets are met, we will spend the remaining weeks perfecting these two pieces and if all goes well, learning another special piece I have prepared.


Group Classes are starting!

Adult beginner group classes have arrived!

Classes will be held every Sunday from 12-1pm from September 10, 2017 – December 10th, 2017 at The Producer’s Club at 358 W. 44th St.

In these classes you will be practicing and playing with other students, learning new technique and theory and you will perform at the end of the semester. Ensemble playing plays a key role in music education and is irreplaceable. Fluid playing is a result of lots of playing time put it on your instrument, and playing with a group is a really fun way to achieve this, and is like no other musical experience.

We will be playing relatively easy songs that we will work on as a group. There will be up to three parts involved: really easy, easy, and pretty easy. So don’t fear that you’ll get a part that’s too hard to play because that’ll be impossible. If this is your first-ever time touching a violin, you’ll need at least a few private lessons to get you started, so I can show you how to hold the violin, use the bow, and the first few basic notes (about 10).

Tuition is as follows:
$35 per class
or $400 for the semester ($28/class)

Students taking regular lessons at The NYC Violin Studio (at least two regularly scheduled lessons per month) receive a discount, as this is a supplementary learning experience.
$25 per class
or $300 for the semester ($21/class).

All forms of payment are accepted, including cash, check, Venmo, PayPal or credit card (a fee will be applied). One to two absences are already figured into the semester, but it would of course be ideal to attend all sessions. If you miss a class or two, you’ll still be fine for the concert.

Classes are held on the second floor of the Producer’s Club. Once you walk in, walk up the stairs and find the room assignment sheet posted on the bulletin board. Arrive 5 minutes early to unpack your things and tune!

As soon as you pay your tuition, you will receive the sheet music and can start learning it ahead of time.

The concert date is TBD, but it will be shortly after the last class on December 10th. Please note that there will be a small admission fee for the concert-goers. Also note you will be encouraged to play solo or duo pieces for the same concert with any accompanying musician or musicians!

Lastly, violin rentals are available for private students.

The class may have anywhere from 3 to 20 students. However, if less than three students are signed up, the class will be canceled until next semester and any tuition fees paid will be refunded or applied toward private lessons. Help prevent this by spreading the word to your friends (you’d be surprised how many people have always wanted to play the violin, or who used to play!)

Please register by August 31st so that the pieces can be properly arranged for those attending the class.

Please enroll before August 31st. If you feel you qualify for either a payment plan (pre-scheduled debits) or a partial or full scholarship, please write or call or text (646) 801-1787.

Looking forward to getting you started!

Thank you for being a part of the music culture in NYC!
