Violin Lesson Cost Details

Are you interested in learning to play the violin? Are you trying to find the perfect violin classes? All you have to do is ask a few questions and compare prices to choose the best and most affordable violin class. Compare and choose from among the best violin classes in Singapore.

1) What are the basic costs that affect the price of violin lessons?

The cost of violin lessons largely depends on the hourly rate charged by the institute and the area you are located in. Fees can also vary depending upon the facilities offered by the institute as well as the expertise of the teachers.

2) What are the additional costs to be expected when learning violin?

Additional costs include the cost of the violin, accessories, registration fee for various exams, events, and activities. You should also account for unexpected costs like repair and maintenance costs.

3) What can you do if you cannot afford private violin lessons?

For many individuals, private violin lessons can mean a huge expense. In such cases, it is easier to take up group lessons which are much cheaper. However, group lessons do not always focus on the student growth.

4) How can we do to fully benefit from the violin lessons?

In order to get the benefits of a private lesson from your group lesson, there are a couple of things you can do.

4.1) Practice, practice, practice

Practice makes a man perfect. The more you practice, the better you will understand the instrument and the technique that suits you the best. Keep aside some time every day to practice the piano.

4.2) Ask questions

Learn by asking questions. Pay careful attention to your instructor and ask questions whenever you find it necessary. It can be about your technique, your posture, or a music piece.

4.3) Watch videos of professionals

This is one of the cheapest ways to master techniques used in violin playing. You can simply watch the videos of professionals as they play and take note of their tips and recommendations. Watching professionals play will help you to get a better understanding of your lesson and is great for helping you to explore your talent.

4.4) Look for online classes

A number of violin instructors teach online private lessons at cheaper rates. If you cannot afford a private lesson, you can easily opt for one of these online classes at half the price.

4.5) You can save money by buying second-hand instruments

Instead of going all out on a brand-new violin, it is better to purchase a second-hand violin in good condition. You might need to hunt around for a bit but it can save you a lot of money, and this can go into covering the expenses for your violin classes.

4.6) Barter services

You can try to avail a discount on your violin lessons if you happen to have a skill that you can trade in exchange for such discounts. For instance, if you own a car and can spare the time to pick up and drop off the members who come to the institute, you may be able to squeeze in a couple of free sessions.

4.7) Make sure to consider all your options

Not all violin lessons are expensive. Like we mentioned earlier, a lot of it depends on the area and the facilities. List down all possible institutes and compare prices. In some places, you can even negotiate the price of the course you wish to take.

Do not jump into hasty decisions, explore all possible options and come up with a plan that is most affordable and suits your requirements.

    I have been learning violin with Ian for about 2 years. His teaching instructions are clear and helpful. He is patient in dealing with my mistakes. I am happy to see my growth under his guidance and will have no hesitation to recommend him to anyone.
