For beginners, intermediate & advanced students.
Get an experienced instructor matched to your own musical interests & goals!
California Music Studios matches you with a professional violin teacher in your area that best fits your own personal musical interests and goals.
Instructors are available for beginning, intermediate and advanced violin players throughout the Southern California area: In Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego, Riverside County, and San Bernardino.
Every instructor is qualified through a stringent evaluation process and has passed a thorough personal and professional background check.
Since the violin does not have frets (like a guitar) it is important for a student to develop an ear for the notes. Your teacher will build a personal connection with you for a custom lesson plan so you have all of the tools you need to be successful.
The violin is a unique instrument, producing a beautiful noise without hitting keys or strumming chords. Pulling the bow across the strings is satisfying on sonic and kinesthetic levels. The violin also trains your ear, allowing you to listen for pitch and tone with other instruments. It offers an extensive range of sound and style, contributing to all genres, from folk to rock. If you’re Owen Pallet, the violin replaces a whole band.
Yes and no. It really depends on who’s playing, who’s teaching you, and the cultural context. However, even professional violin players will refer to the instrument as a fiddle. There isn’t much difference in the two, though folk fiddlers may take some liberties with position, fittings, and bow movements. That said, there really is no separate “fiddle genre.”
Children should be at least 4 years old when they start to learn violin. Other than that, there is no upper limit. You can learn to play young, as a teen, in middle age, or in retirement. The sky’s the limit!
