Our Violin Lessons in Reston, VA Follow 5 Pillars of String Success


  1. Parental assistance at home practice to ensure advancement - learning the violin takes attention to detail. At first, parent assistance at home practice will accelerate development. Parents are taught how to help with practice at home.
  2. Group Learning for peer motivation - Children are motivated to learn by being with their friends instead of going it alone. Weekly small ensemble lessons provide more frequent personal attention from a teacher. Further weekly ensemble classes provide valuable training in playing together and enjoying music with others which is ultimately our long term goal.
  3. Emphasis on accurate technique - How the violin and bow are held and how we move with the instrument is essential for enjoying playing. Constant attention to the fundamentals at lessons, ensemble and home practice is made easy with simple exercises.
  4. Reading from the start - Becoming familiar with reading music early allows the student access to a lifetime of enjoyment of the best music in the world. This is accomplished in a progressive manner
  5. Mile markers of progress - Goals for progress help keep a child motivated to learn. We use technical milestones and song completion to mark progress.
