Violin and Viola Lessons

Violin Lessons, Viola Lessons

Our violin lessons and viola lessons are customized to the needs of each student. 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)/ or Trinity examination program, we can structure your private violin lesson plan accordingly.

We offer violin classes for beginners as well as master violin lessons in Singapore. Private violin lessons can also be arranged.

Violin Private Lessons

Our private violin lessons are mainly one to one coaching, so the violin teacher can give 100% undivided attention during your violin lessons. As opposed to group violin lessons in Singapore, private violin lessons allow the violin teacher to correct any technique and bow handling issues you have throughout the duration of the violin lessons.

The best teacher to student ratio is one to one for private violin lessons. Two student to one teacher ratio for violin lessons in Singapore is still fine. For effective violin lessons, both student must have similar music background and ability, to reap the most from beginner violin lessons.

Private violin lessons can be planned at your home, our music centre at Sultan Plaza, or at teacher’s location.

Violin Lessons For Beginners

For students starting out, it is prudent to engage a qualified violin teacher for beginner violin lessons, to build solid foundation in techniques during violin classes for beginners. During violin classes for beginners, our violin teachers focus on technique, sound, and understanding emotions when playing the violin

Do not under estimate the importance of violin classes for beginners. Some students want to rush through this and skip beginner violin lessons. What is covered during violin lessons for beginners? Basics such as proper posture, bow hold, basic bow handling are not mastered and these students typically don’t do well and need to retake violin classes for beginners.

Once solid foundation is built, your progress to intermediate and advanced level playing will be smooth in future private violin lessons.

When starting beginner violin lessons, you need your personal violin. This sense of ownership will inspire you to practice well and be prepared for future private violin lessons.

  • I have been taking violin lessons from Dwanye for about three months now, and I enjoy learning from him. As an adult learner, initially, I was quite hesitant and worried because I do not have any music background. However, he has been very kind and patient in helping me understand how to play the violin and ensures that I am comfortable with what I am doing each violin lesson. When in doubt, he explains in a way that is easy to grasp. Also, he doesn’t get mad if I mess up on a note, waits if I’m stuck on a certain song, and continues to offer support and encouragement. In a nutshell, Dwanye makes learning the violin fun and exciting.

Mr Yeo is always smiling and very encouraging (I cannot remember ever seeing him not smile!), which puts me at ease while learning difficult passages or techniques. He is also very happy to explain to me the reasoning behind certain playing techniques which helps me appreciate playing the violin even more.

  • Lessons with Tevy, my violin teacher, are the highlight of my week. He provides a well-rounded education that goes beyond mere mastery of violin technique, often supplementing lessons with interesting tips and anecdotes that reveal his experience and knowledge. His enthusiasm is infectious, his energy unceasing; every lesson is enjoyable and over too soon. Under his tutelage, my violin playing has improved swiftly and the best part is: none of it feels like work. Tevy makes it fun!
