Violin Teachers

Fiddle away your favourite tunes!

We can teach you to play Twinkle Twinkle or Let it Go, as well as Bach and Wieniawski!

The violin is one of the easiest instruments to transport and a pathway into being part of Penrith Strings or the Penrith Youth Orchestra. The highest stringed instrument in the orchestra, learn to create beautiful music and identify the different bowing techniques, pizzicato and fingering.

The viola is quite similar to the violin in its shape and the way it’s held, but much lower in pitch. If you prefer lower pitches to high sounds, this is the instrument for you! Good viola players are always in high demand, and opens up many opportunities for chamber music and orchestral performances.

No matter the style or level, we have a teacher to bring out the best in you!
