Here at The Academy Music and Arts Long Island we have a complete strings program offering private instruction for violin, viola, cello, and upright bass. On the smaller string instruments such as violin and viola, students can start lessons as young as the age of 5 on smaller sized instruments. Larger string instruments like the cello and upright bass are started at older ages, much closer to age 10 when children are able to physically handle them.
Violin, Viola, Cello, and Upright Bass lessons are given as 30 minute, 45 minute, and 60 minute lessons. The length of the lesson depends on age, aptitude, and the capability of how much music the student is able to practice each week.
Each student’s instructor can help make the determination on what lessons length is appropriate. Beginner strings student require only half hour lesson sessions. Advanced students require longer lessons to accommodate the volume of work and the scope and depth of their music. At our school we focus on having good technique with an emphasis on posture and excellent bowing.
Violin, viola, cello, and upright bass lessons are offered in our professional studios or our school can conveniently come to your home location for a small additional fee throughout Nassau and Suffolk counties. Our string teachers are university trained and many perform with local orchestras and ensembles.
All of our students encouraged and are prepared to perform in our recital series throughout the year. Our recitals are kept small intentionally to give each student the chance to be featured and show off their music for their families.
Many of our strings students participate in NYSSMA and perform and compete in other local competitions and festivals. On the flip side, students are always encouraged to have fun, and many choose to perform with our in house groups and ensembles which provide students with the opportunity to create new friendships and positive social interaction.
