The violinist is that peculiarly human phenomenon distilled to a rare potency – half tiger, half poet.

Other than the piano, violin lessons are most popular at Clavier Music & Art. Many parents new to this instrument may not be familiar with the patience and understanding involved in the beginning stages of learning a violin. Here are a couple of points to think about:

Your child would not sound like violin pieces in movies for a long time

Beginning stages involve learning the right posture and ways to hold the bow and violin correctly. It takes a lot of patience and practise to stand and play accurately.

A violin needs proper care

Parents are often astounded at the maintenance that comes with a violin – children need help with handling a violin with care. Violin strings and hairs on the bow will need regular upkeep.

We believe that a patient and dedicated teacher makes all the difference for a beginner violinist. CMA violin and viola teachers are ready to guide young children through the early steps towards a rewarding musical journey.

CMA now offers violin syllabuses in AMEB (Australian Music Examinations Board) and TCL (Trinity College London).

Accompaniment rehearsals and accompanists are readily available for all our AMEB and TCL violin and viola exam candidates.

We welcome you for a trial lesson even if your child does not currently own a violin – CMA has violins in a range of sizes ready for trial.
