Violin Lessons FAQ
Q. What is the recommended age at which to start private violin lessons?
A. The recommended age is 5 years. However, it is never too late to start learning and enjoying violin. We have students as young as 4 years old and as mature as 79. Albert Einstein started to learn violin at age of six.
Q. I want to try violin lessons. Where should I start?
A. If you are a beginner it usually makes sense to start by renting a violin. To make it more convenient for our students the Sharon Music Academy has arranged with several vendors to deliver and exchange violins on site. Please follow the links below.
- Spencer Brook Springs.
- Rayburn Music. Please choose “Affiliate: Sharon Music Academy” in “Select District” drop-down menu. Write down the confirmation number and email it to us. Students of the Sharon Music Academy may also have discounts on some instruments sold by Rayburn.
Violins come in different sizes and if you don’t know what size you or your child needs there is plenty information online to help you determine the right size. When renting a violin for the first time don’t forget to get a shoulder rest. For high-end instruments visit Carriage House Violins.
Occasionally, when a student outgrows a violin, he/she will sell their prior instrument by posting an ad on our bulletin board.
