Take music lessons and learn the violin in Australia

 

Music has always been a very important part of human life and a lot of people decide to learn a musical instrument themselves. Probably, the three most popular instruments in modern Western culture are the piano, the guitar and the violin. There are reasons for that. The piano and the guitar are polyphonic instruments, that is to say, we can play several notes at the same time on them. This is very convenient for playing music solo.

 

The violin is different in that respect, as it is generally used to play one note at a time. However, it has also become an extremely important instrument. First of all, the violin has a very beautiful and expressive tone and throughout history, violin players invented a variety of techniques to execute marvellous pieces of music. Second, thanks to its expressiveness, the violin has become an integral part of the classical symphonic orchestra and a lot of composers wrote music for the instrument. Finally, the violin is largely used in modern music of different styles, from rock to pop and even jazz.

 

Being such an important instrument, violin lessons are given in almost every music school in Australia alongside the piano and the guitar. Violin students can join a student orchestra, play duos or trios with other instruments or even execute pieces of music alone. The violin helps music students develop their ear for music and once you've learnt the violin you can master other bowed string instruments like the viola or the cello more easily.

 

The best way to start learning the violin is to take lessons with a private tutor. There are a lot of professional musicians teaching the violin in their free time in NSW, VIC and other states in Australia. They will help you get started and teach you the basic music theory you need. Once you get really good at playing the violin you can enter a music school and study for a degree. Now we will see how violin lessons with a personal teacher can help you.

 

Why music lessons with a private violin teacher are so fun

 

Enrolling with a music school is, of course, a good classical way to learn the violin at the professional level in Australia. In several years, a student can improve their violin technique with a teacher and start playing pieces of music alone or with an orchestra. But each higher music school in Australia has high entry requirements and not every student manages to meet them on their own.

 

A private music teacher can help a lot because they know exactly what a student needs to know to progress at each stage of their learning. In the beginning, a lesson may be needed to introduce the instrument and the right position when playing it. The student will need to know how to hold the bow in their hand and how to move it. Even if a student is learning to play the violin as their main instrument, at some point, they may need to learn the basics of the piano and some music theory too. A private teacher will know exactly when to initiate the student to these skills during their lessons so they can have fun learning.

 

Finally, a good private teacher knows the right teaching methods that will kindle the student's interest and motivate them to move forward. Learning the violin or other bowed instruments like the viola may take time but if students enjoy the music they are practising during their lessons they will be persistent. Personal teachers usually ask about their students' musical preferences and adapt their teaching materials accordingly. You can easily find a great private music teacher in NSW, VIC or other states in Australia and start learning the violin straight away.

 

Tips for beginner violin students

 

The violin is one of the most beautiful musical instruments alongside the piano, the guitar and others. As students take music lessons at primary and secondary schools in Australia, they may grow interested in playing music on their own. The best way to start learning it is to hire a personal teacher who will teach them the right technique and the basics of music theory. However, students can also improve their skills on their own when they have free time.

 

First of all, it's important to understand that private violin lessons are a small part of the learning process and the student will need to do a lot of exercises on their own. It will be extremely important to do all the homework their teacher will give them and practise the violin regularly. Students playing the violin every day often get to a very good level after a few years of training and may even start playing in an amateur orchestra.

 

Another very important point is the student's music culture. When you start learning the violin, it will be very important to listen to music on your own in addition to what you may learn at school in Australia. You may even ask your teacher to suggest good pieces of music after each lesson. Listening to classical or jazz music will improve your ear for music and you will start playing better yourself.

 

Finding a qualified violin teacher in Australia

 

As you may have understood, when starting to learn the violin it's very important to find a good music teacher. Luckily there are a lot of great violinists in Australia who can help you, whether you live in NSW, VIC or anywhere else. The easiest way to get in touch with them is to use Superprof. On our website, you will find the profiles of thousands of professionals teaching the violin across the country.

You will find a really good violin teacher and start playing it very soon. And if you are interested in trying your hand at another instrument, like the piano, viola or guitar, there are plenty of good Superprof teachers who will help you learn them too.
