Violin and Viola Studio
Studio goal: to provide a positive musical experience through learning the foundations of music theory and performance practice while being grounded in proper and healthy physical technique and centering on the enrichment of the mind.
Students learn to play their instrument through exercises, etudes, repertoire, listening assignments, and theory lessons. Focus is spent on classical repertoire especially, but also on other musical styles and the interests of the student. Private lessons are to help students achieve their personal goals, whether they are of amateur or professional aspiration. Music can enrich our lives in any capacity.
Lessons are offered to students of any age and any skill level. From elementary school children to grandparents, lessons can start the first day you get your instrument and continue through preparing for music school or any other goal.
Lessons can be 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 1 hour. It is recommended for younger and beginner students to start at 30mins. Older students often need a little bit more time which a 45 min lesson accomodates nicely. 1 hour lessons are usually reserved for students preparing to enter college or for any students working on audition repertoire.
Cost of Lessons
30 min - $23/lesson
45 min - $28/lesson
1 hour - $35/lesson
At the first lesson of each month, families must pay for all the lessons scheduled for that month in advance. This encourages planning ahead and discourages last minute cancellations and no-shows.
RMF offers scholarships for private lessons. Students who applied, auditioned, and received this scholarship are charged a discounted lesson price of $20/lesson.
Families with more than one member taking lessons back to back are charged the hourly rate rather than two individual 30 min slots.
