Why Take Violin Lessons?

The violin is one of the most famous and beautiful-sounding bowed stringed instruments in history, dating back to the early 15th century. Violin is particularly popular today because it’s famous in culture, cinema, and orchestra plus it’s rewarding to play. You can play violin in a variety of settings, from school bands to church choirs to chamber ensembles! It’s never too early or too late to start, and here at Lessons In Your Home we love to help children get started on the right foot with violin. 

If you’re considering enrolling your child into violin lessons, the violin is a world-renowned instrument to learn. The benefits of playing the violin includes improving a child’s ability to focus, giving students a sense of confidence, helping learners develop finger and arm dexterity, teaching students to express themselves, and most of all provide lovely sounding music for years to come. This is a talent that will spill over and improve skills in other areas of life throughout their teenage and adult years, and it’ll allow musicians to explore a wide variety of music styles and genres.

Violin Lesson FAQs

At what age can a child start taking violin lessons?

Students start violin from different ages – some even as early as 3! There’s a lot to consider and every child is different, but we’ve seen that the ideal age to start violin lessons is between 5-7. At this age, children are able to properly hold an instrument and they’re able to focus and practice. It is still possible to enroll kids as young as 3 or 4, but it may require more supervision and support when first starting.

How long does it take to learn the violin?

Considering there are people who dedicate their entire lives to learning an instrument, it’s possible to continue learning forever. What’s most important is that students enjoy learning and progress in a way that’s meaningful to themselves. Within the first year, a student should have the opportunity to play in a recital or concert. 

If you’re involved with any recitals or the school orchestras, learning will be even faster and your child will develop more and more confidence playing violin.

What do I need to prepare before starting violin lessons?

The most important thing to have to start violin lessons is a violin and a bow! As far as buying or renting one, our team can consult you on what’s best when starting out. Here are some other items to consider, and again your instructor will help you get started:

  • Violin case
  • Rosin for bow hairs 
  • A shoulder and chin rest 
  • Pencil and notebook for taking down notes during lessons
  • A music stand and comfortable chair

Is it better to buy or rent a violin for lessons?

For those starting violin lessons, students can rent violins to get a feel for the instrument and lessons for the first couple months. In addition, renting a violin can help beginner students size up as needed, especially for younger and still-growing students. Buying a violin, on the other hand, is special! If you want to learn more, check out our guide on renting vs buying a violin.

What violin size should I get?

When choosing the right violin size, you can measure the length between the neck and wrist to choose the right size. See below for recommended violin sizes per arm length:

  • 1/8 Violin – minimum of 16” arm length
  • 1/4 Violin – minimum of 18” arm length
  • 1/2 Violin – minimum of 20” arm length
  • 3/4 Violin – minimum of 22” arm length
  • 4/4 Violin (full-size) – minimum of 23” + arm length

When in doubt, our violin teachers can help you with selecting the right size!

How much time should you spend practicing the violin?

Practicing even as little as 15 minutes a day is enough for beginners! The key is practicing daily and consistently, versus a ton of time once a week. There is no hard set rule because everybody learns and practices differently. Your violin teacher will help your child come up with a practicing plan that works uniquely for them.

Can I play the violin using the left hand?

Sure can! While most left-handed violinists learn to play the violin using their right hand for bowing, playing with your left hand is possible through a special left-handed violin, a mirror image of a regular violin.
