We are constantly evolving our approach – whether it’s the way you play or even the material we teach. Our new approach may not be for beginners – but it won’t change what you can learn to play that is good enough for the job and gives you the best possible chance of achieving professional standard.
We try to give you a thorough introduction to the violin and some basic technique to help you get started. You’ll find everything from beginner lessons and music theory to more advanced ones to help you get more out of your playing experience.
How do I get started?
We can’t give you detailed beginner-level lessons – but we can give you a basic introduction to the violin, and introduce you to some basic techniques and music theory as it pertains to the violin. We will provide you with a complete repertoire in addition to any repertoire we already teach with, so once you become more comfortable with the violin, you can keep on learning.
We also suggest that you check out our online learning platform at the link below, where you can learn about all of our current programs and see how they are coming along.

What is the difference between a major and minor interval?

For instance when you hear a piano playing a chord, it sounds like a major chord, but your ear can still distinguish minor and major intervals.
What are interval divisions?
An interval is made up of any number of pitches. For example you would play the same whole tone and minor thirds on a scale, you would add one pitch or quarter of a tone to make it a sixth etc. A whole tone is just that, an open chord interval and a string interval, half a
