While it may be true that the violin is not as popular as the guitar or the piano, it's still a beautiful musical instrument that takes years of playing to master and spans everything from classical orchestra to more modern styles. If you've always wanted to start learning to play the violin, private classes with a Superprof tutor could be an excellent way to get going. They can help students of any age to find their footing and gain more confidence and experience lesson by lesson.
Well, taking lessons with a professional violin tutor has many advantages, whether the classes are performed online or in person. Our teachers can use each lesson to help their individual students reach their tuition goals. They have the time and flexibility to provide exactly what the student needs, whether it's knowledge of basic musical theory, group performance experience or anything else.
One reason to consider online classes is the variety of teachers that are available across the country. Even if you are from Adelaide, you could still try out classes with master teachers from Melbourne to Sydney, and who knows where else in Australia!
Finally, another benefit of this type of more informal tuition is that the student is more in charge of their own learning. Classes in a school, university course or conservatorium will probably follow quite a strict teaching curriculum with not much room for flexibility in lessons.
In classes with a private tutor, you can truly focus your learning wherever your heart takes you! Let's look at some of the topics you could focus on:
If you're studying anything from piano to guitar, and even voice lessons, learning some basic theory is essential at the beginning. Of course, the violin is no different! Students need this solid foundation so they can approach more complex styles of playing.
For example, for students learning at an early age, or adult beginners, an important first step is to learn how to read music. It's a vital skill for every musician, and your tutor will teach you to be able to quickly read (and even adjust) even the most complex piece of music.
While you might already imagine yourself playing on stages across Australia, the reality is that your first performance experience will probably be pretty overwhelming. There are so many things to consider, like where and how to sit or stand, how to work with microphones etc. This is all more complicated if you're playing in a group, like an orchestra or symphony. In that case, you need to take not only your performance needs into account but also those of the people playing around you. Taking the time to learn and practice these skills with your tutor can help to make that first performance a little less daunting!
A lot of students imagine that their classes will be focused on learning concertos and sonatas by Bach, Beethoven and other famous classical composers. If this is what you're looking for from your musical tuition, that's great! But rest assured, there are a lot of other options out there. You can discuss your interests with your tutor in your very first lesson, so they can get online and find some great resources to match them!
Some students may be looking to learn the violin as more than just a musical hobby, and luckily, there are quite a few options in the South Australian capital they can try. Formal qualifications help to become a music teacher yourself, get into a world-renowned orchestra, symphony or conservatorium, or simply reinforce your own confidence in your violin skills.
The Australian Music Examinations Board (AMEB) tests the musical skills of students of all ages in anything from violin, to guitar, piano, voice and, of course, violin! They're a great option for students who aren't looking to complete years of formal tuition at a school or university but want something to show for their hard work.
AMEB exams begin at a preliminary level and finish at the most advanced, a Licentiate diploma. The exams are made up of different parts, which tests students' knowledge of specific pieces of music, reading music, audio-based tests and of course, performance.
You could use your private lessons to prepare seriously for these exams. Many of the teachers in Adelaide on Superprof have taken these exams themselves, so they know the most important topics to learn and can offer tips and tricks for studying efficiently. Private lessons will help you face your music exam with confidence!
The South Australian capital is lucky to be the home of the Elder Conservatorium of Music, based at the University of Adelaide. It is Australia's oldest tertiary music school and is well regarded throughout the country. A great option for students looking for more formal tuition, the Elder Conservatorium of Music offers programs from a diploma to master's level. The student will study a range of areas, like music theory, classical and group performance, composition and more.
Students will also get the great opportunity to audition for both the Symphony Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra, where they can gain vital experience playing in an ensemble, reaching higher levels of discipline and studying different stylistic techniques which could be very useful in their future career.
So, if you're convinced that starting private lessons will take your violin skills from zero to hero, check out the profiles of the Superprof tutors in your local Adelaide area. There's all the information you'll need, as their teaching experience, whether they offer lessons in person or online, at your house or in a private studio and more.
