Violin and Viola Lesson Basics
Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate, or you’ve been playing forever, violin is an amazing instrument with rich history. Our teachers can work with you to accomplish whatever you want and make strings a daily part of your life. If you’re a beginner you’ll start with two books: Suzuki Violin School 1 and Essential Elements Book 1. These two books are the foundation of violin learning. They are so versatile they can be used by both kids and adults.
If you’re more advanced, our teachers will work with you to figure out where you are and develop a personal curriculum.
Violin vs Viola
Violin is the melody carrying instrument of the orchestra – faster, higher, more intricate parts. Violinist are usually a person who’s outgoing and doesn’t mind showing off. The sound is brighter, solo oriented.
People often choose the viola because they fall in love with the sound. It’s deep, warm and rich and just not the same as the violin. It has incredible depth and roundness that students gravitate towards. The viola does a lot of supportive playing, helping carry the players who are responsible for the melody.
Ultimately the choice is a personality thing. It’s who you are.
I am so happy that I was lucky enough to get the recommendation to come here for my kids’ lessons. I would recommend Musicologie to anyone who has a child who is interested in music.
