Private Violin Lessons

Definition: While you’re searching for Violin Teachers in NYC, it’s important to know what a “private lesson” offers as opposed to a “group class”. A Private Lesson is a one-on-one learning environment where one teacher is helping one student learn how to play an instrument. This differs from group classes. You can book your own lessons below. Call (646) 801-1787 or email [email protected] if you need any help.
