Live Classes

Play violin better than ever before.


You're at home. Your violin is sitting in the corner gathering dust. It's a new year. Make the decision to improve on the violin and sign up for the classes that will get you there. 

Adults

Most studios cater to children, and have you start by playing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. Not here. Here you will be surrounded by adults your age and will rock out on awesome songs, or beautiful classics.

Spicing It Up

Every semester is different. Our students return semester after semester because we've always got something new and interesting for them to learn.

Recorded Classes

If you miss a class, you can rewatch it on your own and keep pace with the rest of the class. 

We have the instructors. We have the music. We have the tools. All you have to do is sign up, and show up.

After-Class Online Resources

For those signed up for the All Access Pass which allows you to attend any and all group classes as well as all group class resources online. 

Sheet Music PDFs

You'll be able to track the class weekly, with PDFs always accessible and organized by week. You'll receive additional information to help boost your understanding with the option to explore the topic more on your own.

 

Watch the Classes You Missed

Remember the old days, when music was made live and in person? While we can't do that again just yet, at least there's one benefit: we can record the class so you can play along again later, whether you missed the class or not. 

 

Practice Videos &
Scrolling Sheet Music

Every week you'll have a video to practice with. Some of them will even keep your place for you by tracking the audio, note by note. Talk about never losing your place! Not only that, but you can speed up, slow down, loop, count-in and play a metronome, all within your control.

What do real students think of our classes?

"Progressed a lot faster."

"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."

Melissa
Insurance Underwriter

"You can only get better once you start."

"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."

Hillary
Retired Marketing Executive

"It's perfect."

"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."

Ziyan
Accountant

 

"I was just a complete beginner."

"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."

Julia
English Major

"Really fun, really enjoyable."

"I've always wanted to learn the violin, actually since I was little. In my early 30's my mother bought me a violin as a gift, as a way to encourage me to actually play violin. I would definitely recommend NYC Violin Studio. I feel like we accomplish a lot. They are understanding that we're adults, and this isn't probably going to be a career change for us. It's something you can do that's really fun, really enjoyable but you can also see so much progress."
