Our students have opportunities to perform on world-renowned stages, including Carnegie Hall in New York. Aspiring violinists from the Sharon Music Academy participate in many local, national, and international competitions. The Academy also provides its violin 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. Our violin program provides a structured approach to music education with an emphasis on mastering the violin and combines the Suzuki and the traditional approach to violin study. Our teaching process builds the foundation that allows our students to play different styles - from classical to Irish fiddle.
Most importantly, our students acquire the skill, love, and appreciation for violin that they carry throughout their whole life.

"Pre-Twinklers" Suzuki Violin

The students are known as "Pre-Twinklers", because they are learning musical concepts to be able to play "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star." The goal of this program is to show the students the fun and joy of playing violin and show them a path to a lifelong adventure of studying this wonderful instrument. The students will have an informal recital at the end of the session to give them a taste of music performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recommended age at which to start private violin lessons?
The recommended age to start private violin lessons is five. But every child is unique, and we have students as young as 3.5. You can ask for a 4-lessons trial period to assess your child's readiness for private lessons. However, it is never too late to start learning and enjoying the piano. We have students as mature as 79. Albert Einstein started to learn the violin at the age of six.
I want to try violin lessons. Where should I start?
If you are a beginner, it usually makes sense to start by renting a violin. Sharon Music Academy recommends several vendors:
  1. Spencer Brook Springs.
  2. Johnson String
Violins 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 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, the parents will sell their older instrument by posting an ad on our bulletin board.
