VIOLIN LESSONS

Tara offers group lessons and one-on-one lessons through her business ME AND MY VIOLIN.

Popular is the Intro Violin Group where students attend a 30-minute group lesson twice weekly. The violin is supplied by ME AND MY VIOLIN  for the first year of lessons. This introductory year then leads to group as well as individual lessons, and a chance to be part of the String Ensemble!

ME AND MY VIOLIN students have many opportunities to work towards examinations with ABRSM, eisteddfods, concerts and competitions; or can just have fun learning to play!
