Sweet Symphony offers Violin Lessons to Students of all ages and abilities from their Studio in Washington, Tyne and Wear.

“I’ve been taking violin lessons with Ray…since February. I’ve found him to be a great teacher and would highly recommend him. I’m definitely a mature student, having tried to teach myself for a few years after taking early retirement before looking around for lessons and finding Sweet Symphony just a few minutes drive from my house. I’m very glad they were there!”

(Jim, Adult Violin Student)

Violin Lessons

Violin Lessons are available for both adults and children. All abilities are welcome, from absolute beginners to advanced players. Learn to play a wide variety of songs and styles of music straight from day 1.

Students must have a Violin before taking up lessons. Your Teacher can help with tasks such as tuning your instrument and replacing strings.

Yes, Students will need to bring along their own instrument to lessons.

Do you teach adults, too?
