Violin teachers at Stradivari Strings have many years of teaching experience. They are able to draw on their years of experience to create comprehensive violin lesson program for both adults and kids.
It is important to learn with the right violin teacher to build a good foundation. Our violin teachers focus on technique and sound, as well as understanding emotions when playing the violin.
Violin classes are tailored to the needs of each student. As such whether you are interested in learning the violin for leisure, or prefer to track your progress via the ABRSM (Associated Board Of Royal School of Music)/ LCM (London College Music)/ Trinity examination program, we are able to structure your lesson plan accordingly.
Viola teachers who are dedicated and experienced are also more difficult to locate in Singapore. Stradivari Strings has viola teachers who meet this criteria. Do contact us for more information.
Violin and Viola lessons can be conducted at our school (located at Sultan Plaza) or at your home.
