Violin Lessons (for children or teenagers)

Mr Ian is extremely professional, creative and patient. He is teaching our three (almost 4) year old and uses a number of ways to both communicate and provide feedback to the learner. Mr Ian makes every class interesting and engaging. If you are interested in having your child learn and appreciate music through the violin - Mr Ian is the teacher for you, especially for younger learners as they benefit from having the one-on-one interaction and attention. We would highly recommend him.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Yes. First lesson is always free. Subsequent lessons depend on the amount of time you want each week.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First lesson is free and includes free advice on any supplies or music you need as a new or experienced musician. I also give a general assessment of where you are at and what needs to be done to accomplish your goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a Violin Performance Bachelors Degree, and I have been playing the violin for 30 years. I have played jazz, classical, country, folk, and fiddle but I specialize in classical.
