"A great way to meet new people"

"We're in a really crazy time right now, so being able to pick up the violin and having something to practice has been a really nice distraction. It's also been a great way to meet new people, especially living in the city. It's been really fun. I definitely progressed a lot faster than my expectations were. It helped a lot to be doing group classes, just to kind of to take from others and learn, and get advice."

"One of the greatest joys"

"My age range, above 60, are feeling like they still have a lot of years ahead of them and have plenty of time to learn things and grab onto things they might have missed in their youth. Playing a musical instrument is certainly one of the greatest joys an individual can experience. So they should certainly give it a try because you can only get better once you start, so you may as well try. I recommend the NYC Violin Studio with my highest highest regards and would love to spread the joy that it brings."

"I always wanted to learn a new instrument"

"I always wanted to learn a new instrument and violin is probably the top on my list. I started with group classes. The timing works perfectly for me. With only 5-10 students in the classes I think it's perfect. The teachers are very nice and they understand the needs of the students. At the end of the semester we usually have a concert, and I love that as well."

"It's something I can do to really express how I feel"

"I just recently graduated college. Playing the viola has been a way I could express myself. When I'm not feeling well, or when I'm feeling very happy, it's something I can pick up and do to really express how I feel. I started off taking private lessons with Antoinette and they were really helping me. I was just a complete beginner and she really helped me with the basics like how to even hold the viola, how to properly position it. Starting off with the basics, she really helped me with that."

"Truly top notch professionals who make the class fun!"

"I cannot recommend NYC Violin Studio enough. I have been to other schools in NYC and this is by far the best. Scheduling is incredibly easy. If I needed to miss a class I could make it up on another date. The instruction is fantastic. I think the instructors understand that most of the students aren't planning on becoming concert violinists, so they focus on teaching interesting pieces while providing enough theory and technique to improve without completely overwhelming us. Truly top notch professionals who make the class fun!"
