Private Viola Lessons Cultivating Creativity Through Music

Viola Lessons

Sharon Music Academy has an extensive viola program. Our students successfully pass auditions and play in prestigious orchestras such as Boston Youth Symphony Orchestra, New England Conservatory Orchestra, All-State Orchestra, South Eastern Massachusetts Orchestra, and many local and school orchestras. They have opportunities to perform on world-renowned stages, including Carnegie Hall in New York. Aspiring violists from the Sharon Music Academy participate in many local, national, and international competitions. The Academy also provides its viola students an opportunity to play chamber music and perform with professional musicians. Many of our former students continue to play in college orchestras and amateur chamber groups. Most importantly, however, our students acquire the skill, love, and appreciation for viola that lasts a lifetime.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recommended age at which to start private viola lessons?
The recommended age is 5 years. However, it is never too late to start learning and enjoying the viola. We have students as young as 4 years old and as mature as 79.
I want to try viola lessons. Where should I start?
If you are a beginner, it usually makes sense to start by renting a viola. Sharon Music Academy recommends several vendors:
  1. Spencer Brook Springs.
  2. Johnson String
Violas come in different sizes, and if you don’t know what size you or your child needs, there is plenty of information online to help you determine the right size. When renting a viola 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, the parents will sell their older instrument by posting an ad on our bulletin board.
