Our Approach to Violin & Viola Lessons at Tampa Music School
Mastering the violin or viola can be a somewhat technical adventure. Unlike many other instruments, there are no automatic true pitches to be had. The true pitch must be accomplished by the student’s ear and fingers alone.
Violin lessons as well as viola lessons require more of a complete body awareness than any other instrument. This awareness is taught not in a high-pressure way but in a calm and reassuring way meant to foster feelings of confidence and safety. To achieve eventual mastery and freedom of performance, it is vital to be a good student of music in a general sense.
Have you ever been inspired by the emotional performance of a true string artist? At Tampa Music School, we believe the strings are some of the most versatile and emotive instruments. A good violinist or violist can call to action, sing sweetly or sigh sorrowfully. You can become a well-versed student of this type of musical expression by partnering with a qualified violin teacher or viola teacher. Tampa Music Studio employs exactly the type of instructor who can assist you in mastering this elegant instrument.
Violin & Viola Lessons Should Be Fun!
The only thing sweeter than the sound of a violin or viola is the experience students will have at Tampa Music School. We pair the sophistication of these classic string instruments with an unwavering commitment to fun. We want each of our students to LOVE their music lessons!
Our teaching staff expertly blends a high standard of music education with a creative, student-focused approach that gives students space to discover and nurture their passion for music and the violin. Whether you’re looking to pick up the instrument for the first time or want to earn the first chair in your orchestra, our teachers are ready to help you progress quickly toward your goals – while having fun along the way.
We Emphasize Healthy Technique
Strong fundamentals are key to efficient, effortless playing and optimal sound. We teach students essential instrument care and set-up, tuning, healthy playing posture, bowing, and hand positioning. Our skilled instructors also take students through regular ear training exercises to foster the development of good pitch.
Additionally, we strive to ensure our students become literate musicians through lessons in scales, music theory, rhythm, and sight-reading. More advanced students will build a broader repertoire of technique, including vibrato, double-stop and chord playing; more advanced bow strokes such as spiccato, sautillé, and up-bow staccato; and other higher-level musicianship concepts such as phrase analysis and score studying skills.

Our teachers take an individualized approach to each student – underpinned by detailed individual assessments, a thorough and logical sequence of skill development and training, and one-on-one guidance throughout your musical journey.

“I have learned so much about working within a band. Matt has been very supportive of all members and has an obvious understanding of how each instrument within the band can be showcased and contribute to the overall sound. I’m very grateful I’ve found such a nice studio right in my community.”
