Colleyville Violin, Viola, Cello Lessons

Want to learn violin, viola, or cello? How this works:

We offer violin, viola, or cello lessons at our studio. Violin students can start as young as age 5, and parents will need to help with proper posture, positioning, and practice at home. Many students choose to start with piano lessons, to learn the basics of music first, but others jump into the violin first. What matters most is the student’s excitement and passion for the instrument. If they are committed to practice, they will be successful!

The viola looks similar to the violin, but it’s very different! The cello is a much larger instrument with a beautiful sound.

You can often rent a string instrument from a local store, so you can keep upgrading the instrument, as the student grows. Rental programs are usually about $25 per month and sometimes you can participate in a rent-to-own program that helps you own your instrument eventually!
