Violin is an instrument that can be learnt at almost any age from around 4 years. Adults can also happily learn violin and thoroughly enjoy it!

What you’ll learn…

  • The correct posture (the way a player stands and holds their instrument) is important and is something that is developed over time.
  • To play your instrument
  • To read music and the theory required
  • Aural skills especially for pitch are essential for violin. There are no frets on a violin so the player has to develop a keen sense for pitch.

We recommend young beginners (4 – 7 yr olds) start with our Junior Keys programme where all the basics including pitch training are developed first. ?See?Forte… Our Philosophy
