Learning the violin with Janice has been nothing short of an amazing experience. Accommodating and patient, she adjusts the lesson pacing to suit each student, making it a joy for anyone to jump into learning the violin. She makes learning music theory easy and fun, even for a beginner. During the first conversation, she took the effort to understand my needs, goals and even my preferred location, before pairing me with a teacher. You can be certain that you will be in good hands throughout your journey with the violin!

Previously, Sze Meen had violin lessons in a well-known violin school without much progress. Thereafter, we found teacher Janice, who is very patient and experienced. Under her guidance, Sze Meen has made good progress and became more motivated to learn. Teacher Janice makes the effort to update on Sze Meen's progress after every lesson. I'm so glad to have found a good violin teacher for Sze Meen!

I have had around 6 lessons with Janice and it has been very helpful. In the past I had tried learning the violin by myself, on and off over 2 years or so, and made very little progress. As an adult learner with no prior musical training and blessed with poor body awareness, I do need plenty of guidance - and it's great to be able to get that. Janice emphasizes a lot on having the right posture, hold, bowing, and on being relaxed. She goes to great lengths to fix my errors, hand-holding till things are right. There is plenty to unlearn if you didn't start correctly. I also like the selection and order of her lessons and the pieces we play. Janice has initiated me into reading musical notation, which I had incorrectly presumed was very diffcult. This has made it possible for me to discover and learn new music to practise.

I have been attending going to Janice for violin classes for months now and it’s been a great experience. She has amazing personality, while she is fun personality, always smiling, she is on point with learning, which is amazing combination for a teacher. I started as a complete beginner and she is very patient with me all the time, even when i miss classes and practicing due to crazy work at my office. I would totally recommend Janice as a teacher for beginners as well as advanced. Btw she has been playing violin for decades, hence when she plays, it’s extremely motivating.

It is really helpful to have such a service to connect with teachers directly. I had first emailed many schools for lessons for an adult beginner, and had got almost no replies. Having been learning with Janice has been very helpful to correct my errors and learn the basics properly from the ground up. She is patient and her lessons have been a good mix of theory and practice, strengthened through exam preparations. I also appreciate the flexibility of being able to arrange timings at mutual convenience, as my schedule is unpredictable - don't think this would have been possible through a big-name school.

For my boy who sort of wonder off at time, firm and caring Teacher Xiao Qing makes sure he gets back and focus on his pieces. It helps that Teacher Xiao Qing is a mother herself with a young child and knows how to handle them.

My childhood dream was to play a violin. As a beginner, I searched for a violin teacher to properly demonstrate and explain to me the basics of playing a violin. I came across this website, Learn Violin Lessons Singapore, and inquire for a teacher. The response was so quick and gave me all the information that I needed like the materials that I need for the lessons, necessary fees and of course the quality of the violin. Overall, I love the service they have provided me. Currently, I am studying violin under Ms. Janice. She’s very accommodating, encouraging, patient and compassionate, which makes me enjoy playing violin. Keep Inspiring people.

She’s very nice and pleasant, and playing the violin is definitely more interesting and fun under her guidance. It’s also great as she’s patient if you’re slower and because of her flexible schedule. Highly recommended if you want a good experience while learning

Charlotte has a very short attention span. She would start to play punk or cry at her previous teacher after 15 minutes of every lesson. But never since she started learning from teacher Janice. She enjoys her violin lessons a lot and did not complain that the lesson is too long. We believe that Charlotte will progress more and excel under teacher Janice's guidance.~ Agnes&Max, parent of Charlotte

Decided to pick up adult violin as a new hobby . Janice’s initial promise to me was I will learn fast under her. Saw many others who had similar good feedback and gave it a try with her. Just 4 lessons in and I can already play decent elementary pieces . Gone were the days when my attempts on a violin yielded only sounds reminiscent of an accident scene . Kudos to Janice’s pedagogy approach and a great team at LVL violin school in Singapore.

I found LVL music academy by searching on google. Janice is very kind and helpful. She found me a nice and professional cello teacher, Malcom, who lives very close to my home. I really enjoy the lesson with him and decided to continue learning cello after the trial lesson. Feel free to approach LVL and Janice if you want to learn a new instrument!

Common Questions About Violin Lessons

Is there a minimum age to start violin classes?

Ideally a good age to learn would be 4years old onwards. However some children as young as 3 years 6 months old can start too. Every child is different. Best to do a trial class first to see if your child is ready.

Am I too old to join violin classes?

There is no age limit. If you put your heart in it, anyone can learn the violin. One of our top performing students is 67 years old and he joined at the age of 65!

How to choose the best violin for beginners? (I do not have a violin)

At LVL Music Academy, we will guide you on how to do so. Beginner violins for sale and rental are available. Please talk to teacher Janice.

What happens if I am unable to catch up on what was taught in the previous class?

Our teachers will always make sure you understand and master a skill before moving forward. Every class is tailored according to each student’s ability to learn.

Do you provide online violin lessons?

Yes, we do. We have 1-to-1 home & studio classes as well as private online violin lessons.
Studio classes are held at LVL violin school located at 195 Pearl's Hill Terrace (near Chinatown MRT).

I am a complete beginner, can I join group classes?

I would recommend group classes for more advanced players. Beginners would learn more from a one to one class. You get to learn the right basics and build a good foundation.

How hard is it to learn the violin?

Anyone can learn the violin. You just need the right teacher, good violin and practice.

I am going on a holiday for 2 weeks, will I be able to utilise my lessons for another time?

Yes, you can. You can schedule the lessons after you come back from your holiday.

Can parent(s) sit in the class with the child?

Yes, encouraged. This way you can know your child’s progress and also assist your child during home practice.

Is it a must to do examinations (ABRSM)?

No, it is not. But it is encouraged so we can work towards goals. Leisure learning is available too.

How long does it take to become a violinist in Singapore?

In 4 lessons you will be able to play some simple tunes. To become a great violinist in Singapore it takes dedication & practice, our teachers will help you with that.

Do you provide classes other than violin lessons?

Yes, we provide piano lessons, cello lessons and many more. You can find more classes here.

How to become a violinist in Singapore?

If you want to become a good violinist in Singapore, as a beginner you need to have weekly lessons, practice as much as you can, have a good violin, and learn from your teacher as much as possible.

How much time it takes to learn violin?

As a beginner student it will take you up to 6-8 months to learn the violin, but we have seen some of our beginner students progress much faster when they put a lot of time to practice and play on a good violin.

How many violin lessons do I need?

We advise you to take violin lessons once a week as it is ideal for proper progression.

How we teach beginner violin lessons?

In a nutshell your teacher will introduce you to open strings, followed by first position with the left hand and how to have a good bow hold. Setting good foundations and techniques.

Can you learn violin by yourself?

It is not impossible to learn the violin by yourself, but of course, by having a good violin teacher it will save you a lot of time as you will learn the correct techniques and boosts your confidence to learn faster.
