About Music Lessons
Who can enrol for violin, viola or cello lessons?
Asher teaches all ages and levels. Anyone from 4 years of age can enrol for violin lessons. For viola and cello lessons students should be a little older as the instruments are larger. Young players repond intuitively while older beginners readily grasp technical concepts. The most important part of learning is having a regular practice schedule.
What will I learn at my lessons?
Beginners start with the basics of having a comfortable hold of the instrument and bow. Then we then learn to read music. As you develop fingering and bowing skills we will cover material that can prepare you for AMEB exams. Doing exams is optional, but recommended, as having a goal aids progress. We develop intonation and tone quality and learn how to interpret pieces musically. Most lessons have three parts: scales, studies and pieces.
When can I have my lesson?
Lessons are arranged at times that are convenient for you. When filling in the booking form just let us know what times are best.

What opportunities can playing an instrument provide?
