Violin - Beginners

Our Violin Lessons are a fun, supportive and social way to learn to play the violin in London. You will learn to play the acoustic/classical violin with an experienced professional violinist and tutor. Like most of our music lessons, our classes are taught in a group, but you’ll get individual feedback and help every step of the way. 

City Academy’s Violin Lessons for Beginners will teach you how to play violin from the basics. Suitable for beginners, you will be given the musical knowledge, correct violin techniques and foundational skills to be able to pursue learning the instrument. These adult violin lessons are taught in groups on the acoustic/classical violin. Our tutors are professional musicians who will help you learn to play violin in a fun and supportive environment.

All City Academy tutors are experienced professionals from theatre, film/TV and performance industries. So whilst they're training you they may also be rehearsing for a West End show or working on a movie. We like that and we do believe it makes a difference in class.
