What People Are Saying

I’ve really enjoyed taking private lessons with Antoinette. The private lessons really helped me get a firm grasp of the basics, I’ve really gotten better at playing in the last few months because of these lessons, and I had a lot of fun! Never felt boring or like work. I would highly recommend Music Lessons Academy for players of any experience level and age.

Julia Lorella

Melody is not only a wonderful musician, she’s a true teacher. She is endlessly patient with my daughter and can always find a different way to explain or describe what was needed to be done. She was always encouraging but never fake about praise. I’m a teacher myself, so I recognise what it takes to be a good one–and Melody is not just good: she’s excellent. I’ve never met better.

Why Should You Take Violin Lessons?

Violin Teachers for Kids

our instructor have a lot of experience with total beginners, and know how to guide them through to an advanced level.

Violin Teachers for Adults

We have a large group of adult students that enjoy weekly lessons with us.

An instrument that has been loved by many around the world and across time, the violin is a small instrument capable of producing a range of beautiful sounds and melodies and many people have taken violin lessons over the years.

However, it is not the easiest instrument to master. With plenty of technical demands, virtuosic literature, and physical needs, one must maintain and practice the instrument to understand and overcome its challenges.

If you are interested in violin lessons in the private space of your own home either for a child or as an adult you should consider violin lessons with Music Lessons Academy Australia.

Unlike keyboard instruments such as piano, string instruments require an impeccable ear to produce good intonation. This is because the pitch of the sound changes as the musician slides her fingers along the strings. Unlike the guitar, the four major orchestral string instruments do not have frets.

Sometimes when learning the instrument, beginner students will place tape on the different positions of the violin to learn the distances. However, many musicians, especially those who are very young, learn to develop their ears simply with practice and learn to coordinate the pitch of the note with the placement of their fingers. All learning progress is personal to how quickly you can pick up the techniques of how to play.

As scientists from the University of Iowa have stated, “Violins did not evolve; rather, the behaviour of the violin makers evolved.” The violin seemingly appeared out of nowhere in the mid-1500s in northern Italy. Unlike an instrument like the modern piano, which underwent several developments, the first appearances of the violin are virtually the same as the modern-day violin. Variation in the size of sound holes and other physical attributes of the violin changed depending on the maker and their musical motivations.

Today in 2021, the violin is a major component of classical music ensembles. The concertmaster, or the leader of the violin section (and by default the rest of the orchestra), is a violinist. The violin is also a major element of chamber music literature: string trios (violin, viola, and cello), string quartets (two violins, viola, and cello), and in piano duets (in the case of sonatas or as an accompaniment). Many composers from Beethoven to Stravinsky wrote huge works for chamber music which are still played and enjoyed today for people of all ages. You can find classical pieces online to listen to, young people can learn a lot from classical music pieces.

If you are looking into picking up music lessons and becoming a violin student, contact us at Music Lessons Academy Australia to find out more details, we have fantastic music teachers all around Australia from Sydney to Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth looking to help make students love to play music. We provide private in-home lessons or offer online violin lessons which are especially useful in covid lockdowns when you want to continue learning to play the violin.

Holding The Violin

Rest the violin on your collarbone and support it slightly with the left hand, and the shoulder. Next, gently rest the side of your face on the instrument to add a little stabilizing weight.. Make sure your violin is held parallel to the floor. Because the left hand must move somewhat freely up and down the neck of the violin during performance, it is best if not too much support is required from the left hand. Practicing letting go briefly of the left hand can help ensure that your shoulder collarbone and head are really doing most of the work to support the instrument. Walking around a little while holding the instrument can help train you to be more comfortable. sliding the left hand up and down the neck will help prepare you for the next steps.

Bow Hand Position

Practicing a good bow hold is crucial to good sound production. A good bow hold is controlled, yet flexible. Place your right hand on the bow, with your thumb, slightly curved, gently inside the frog, (the cutout just before the hairs of the bow). Lay the remaining finger over the top of the bow, slightly spread out. Curve the pinky slightly and place it near the end of the bow, on top, in a way that it can control the tilt of the bow. It takes some practice for the pinky to get used to controlling the tilt of the bow, and to be well balanced. The bow hold should never be squeezed. Next, when drawing the bow across the strings, make sure that the shoulder is low and relaxed, and that the joints of the elbow and wrist are interconnected. The bow eventually should feel as an extension of the arm, rather that seperate.
