Nirvana Academy of Violin Classes
If you see that you or your child gets bored of taking violin lessons and doesn’t want to continue anymore, don’t be surprised. It’s normal for someone who only takes private lessons once a week and does nothing else with the violin to get bored. It is very important for students to have interactions with each other because it’s only through group performances that students improve faster while they enjoy playing. When students play together, they can follow up on each others’ progress, they get more motivated and inspired, they develop stronger ear, they learn how to synchronize and follow each other.
At Nirvana Academy of Violin, not only we provide group classes, orchestra sessions, and 2 very elaborated and sophisticated recitals per year, we also provide other performance opportunities for our advanced students by assigning them to paid gigs that are being requested from other organizations such as theatres, churches, weddings, corporations, etc. We also make sure that our adult students at any level receive as much attention as our younger students do by encouraging them to perform with each other in a group format or to join the orchestra if their level fit.
Private Violin Lessons
Private lessons are offered for students age 4-60. Students may take 1 or 2 lessons per week depending on their capacity, age, and their commitment level. 30 minute lessons are usually more suitable for age 4 or 5. Lessons are focused both on Suzuki method (ear training) and traditional method (note reading).
Children’s Violin Orchestra
Children’s violin orchestra lessons are provided twice a month as a supplementary program to the private lessons, however, students experience other types of musical activities apart from performing together. These lessons demand students to listen to each other with high concentration which as a result their listening ability increase tremendously.
RCM Exam Preparation
At Nirvana Academy of Violin, we encourage our students to participate in the RCM exams and receive official certificates on their violin performance skills. 100% of our students have received passing grades and some have received the RCM’s Gold Medal. We prepare students with ear training, technical material and repertoires.
Orchestra and University Audition
Many violin students who get to a higher level of performance want to audition for different orchestras and advance their performance skills in a group setting. Nirvana Academy of Violin is the place where can prepare these students to achieve their goals.
