Violin Lessons

Looking for beginner violin lessons?

We offer a range of beginner violin lessons through advanced violin lessons, both on-site serving Bergen County and Northern New Jersey, or online via Zoom.


The violin is a highly versatile string instrument often taking a prominent part in orchestral and folk music, as well as in a variety of other musical genres. 

Beginning violinists not only learn the proper positioning, posture and bowing techniques to play their violins, they have fun learning to play basic songs within only a few lessons! As our violin students begin to master their instruments, they explore a wider range of popular and classical literature.

Our violin instructors are highly trained virtuosi performers and experienced, caring teachers who are dedicated to helping their students achieve success. They not only guide their student-violinists in learning the basics of rhythm, timing and tone, they take care to enable their students to flourish and become confident in developing their unique playing styles.


Learning how to play the violin offers many different benefits to students of any age, such as improving coordination and memory as well as providing a creative outlet. Since violin is commonplace in many different music genres including classical, folk, pop, country, jazz and rock, violinists are able to broaden their horizons as they immerse themselves in various styles of music.

Offered as one-on-one private lessons to students as early as age 4, violin lessons help our youngest students realize a great sense of accomplishment as they learn and grow. As our violinists continue to study, they develop the dexterity necessary to finger the proper notes as they pluck or bow the corresponding strings. As a bonus benefit, the bowing techniques learned in playing violin are easily translated to learning other string instruments such as the viola, cello and double bass!
