Online Violin lessons occur once per week. Lessons may be 30, 45, or 60 minutes long.  You will learn how to play musically right in the comfort of your own home!

How are online violin lessons different from in person lessons?

Online lessons maintain the high standard that Riverside Music Studio has for all of our music classes.

Unlike many of the pre-recorded tutorials and asynchronous classes available on YouTube or Google, these violin lessons are an incredibly personalized learning experience. Each private class is adapted to the students’ needs.

Our encouraging violin instructors will keep you motivated and will help you learn to play the pieces that you love!

Topics covered in online violin lessons include:

  • technique (such as bowing, fingering, how to hold the instrument, etc.)
  • repertoire & etudes
  • instrument care
  • how to tune your instrument
  • sight-reading
  • improvising
  • composing
  • music theory
  • music history
  • and more!

 What platform is used to conduct virtual violin lessons?

Both Zoom and Skype lessons are available. Your violin teacher will assign homework and send lesson materials through these platforms.

In addition, you may purchase suggested music books on your own.

"It's wonderful that we could transition and continue our virtual piano and violin lessons with Riverside Music Studios. Turning to their music has been a huge consolation for the children losing connection with the rest of their normal day-to-day world. They have been practicing more and have found the music to help them cope! It's also really admirable that they will be hosting the virtual end of year recitals, too. We really appreciate all of their efforts coordinating everything and still recognizing the student's progress, even online. -Jennifer
