Violin Lessons for beginners or experienced musicians
The violin is the mainstay of the orchestra, an instrument popular for generations that can sound as good when played solo as it does in an ensemble. At Pro Music Tuition our friendly and professional string department can provide violin lessons no matter your age or skill level, from young children up to adults of any age.
We offer both individual and group lessons. Individual lessons are ideal for students looking to hone their skills with a particular piece or to prepare for exams. We offer individual lessons in 30-minute or 60-minute sessions, on weekdays after school or on weekends.

We teach children from the age of 5 and up. As well as playing popular songs we also teach music theory and scales in order to provide a well-rounded education.

If pupils want to work towards exams this is also an option, as well as playing in our live showcases that take place three times a year.
Whatever age and whether learning through group or individual tuition we offer to train pupils for exams. Working towards a goal like this can help teach children to focus and the sense of achievement when passing grades is always a thrill. We work with several different syllabuses, including ABRSM, Trinity and Rockschool. If you have previously learned pieces for an exam elsewhere we can provide the exam for you (excluding ABRSM).

Violin Lesson FAQS
At what age should my child start violin lessons?
Come along for a free violin taster session. Our teachers will be able to determine if your child is ready to play. Normally, children start around 5 years old, but some children as young as 3 can learn to play. Violins come in various sizes so we can accommodate different ages as well as resources for learning with too.
Do you teach adult classes to learn the Violin?
Yes, at Pro Music, we teach children and adults; most parents like to start learning with their children as it is an activity they can enjoy together. We also teach over 300 adults without children who have always had the desire to learn and feel it’s now time to do something they have always wanted. Anyone can learn to play the violin at any age; it has nothing to do with age and everything to do with the pupil’s mindset.
Learning a new talent, regardless of what it is, involves desire, discipline, and determination; and learning violin is no different. It is a great way to keep the mind active and young, studies have shown that it can even prevent cognitive decline as we age. Thanks to something called neuroplasticity, your brain can create new pathways and neurons at any age. So while it’s true that children and young adults will pick up new skills faster, adults of any age can enjoy the multiple benefits of learning an instrument.
Is practising the violin for 1 hour a day enough?
Amateur Adult: 1-2 hours daily. Many adult amateurs are extremely busy individuals who struggle to find even 15 minutes a day to practise! But in order to advance at a satisfying pace and get the most out of their piano study, an adult amateur student will ideally be able to dedicate at least an hour a day to practising.
Children: Again, there will be a direct correlation between time spent practising and advancement. Children and younger adults have the advantage of being able to learn faster, but we recommend 15 minutes a day of practice, or 30 to 45 if sitting exams.
What type of violin should I buy as a beginner?
Windsor violins are the best budget violins, as they’re affordable but still have a good enough tone for beginner and intermediate violinists. Designed for a comfortable learning experience, the Windsor violin is a quality beginner instrument perfect for students, and enthusiasts alike suited for up to grade 5. Its beautifully crafted body with ebony style features not only makes the Windsor violin a classically elegant instrument and a great addition to any musician’s musical collection but gives the player confidence through quality materials allowing easy learning.
What are the benefits of music lessons for kids?
Builds language skills.
As they learn their instrument, children become accustomed to various sounds they would not have acknowledged before. This practice teaches their ears the subtle sounds of language.
It makes them academically stronger.
Links have been found between music lessons and nearly every measure of academic achievement: SAT scores, reading comprehension, and math skills. Music also improves their powers of recall for powerful learning in all subjects.
Numerous studies have proven that children’s IQs improve after even a few weeks of music lessons. Brain scan technology indicates that brain activity improves following musical training, and some areas of the brain even grow.
It teaches discipline.
Music lessons require hours of concentration and patience. Children must persist even when things aren’t going well, an invaluable skill for all areas of life.
It supports muscle development and motor skills.
Children must use their entire bodies to maintain the rhythm when they play. They also must coordinate various movements with their hands at the same time. In doing so, they develop strength and coordination.
It improves social skills.
If children play in a group, they have to learn to work together to achieve a shared goal, exercising tolerance, patience, and encouragement towards their peers.
It makes kids feel good about themselves.
There’s nothing quite like the sense of pride that comes from working on a new skill, especially when the result is beautiful music.
It helps kids understand the culture.
By learning music from various parts of the globe, students come to understand these cultures.
It brings happiness.
And the most important reason of all. When children can play music, it makes them happy, and everyone else too.
Do your students get an opportunity to perform?
Yes, we hold three showcases per year. There are 4 to 5 concerts which involve many musicians of all levels who simply want to perform effectively. We roughly have about 400 to 500 in the audience and is always an enjoyable evening.
Why should we choose Pro Music for violin lessons?
Pro Music Tuition offers the tuition of a wide range of instruments including guitar, piano and drums. We offer our lessons to children and adults of all ages and abilities. Our tuition centres are open 7 days for individual and group lessons. We offer trinity rock and pop grading here, along with those who take exams with ABRSM.

VIOLIN LESSON TESTIMONIALS
"As an adult learner who used to play Violin as a child, I found Gemma to be an excellent teacher who understands my aspiration, current skills and potential. She plays the violin like I have never heard before - very lively and soothing. She also teaches cello and piano and what impressed me is the piano accompaniment she does with me when I play any violin piece. She assessed me as playing at grade 3 (Trinity School Music) and I am going to put everything I learned into practice every day. Thank you so much Gemma@Sutton Coldfield"
"My 6 year old has been taking violin lessons with Gemma for almost 2 months now and I’m really pleased with the progress she’s made in such a short time. Gemma’s lessons are relaxed but engaging and tend to follow the child’s lead which keeps my daughter interested and enjoying her lesson. We both look forward to the lesson each week and I would recommend Pro Music Boldmere to anyone considering music lessons."
"My kids had their first online violin and piano lesson thru zoom last Thursday and they have a great time with Sophie. She's brilliant, patient and a very good teacher. I really recommend her and of course Pro Music. "
"Amazing violin lessons with Chenille! As an adult beginner, I was apprehensive but Chenille put me at ease straight away with her friendly and gentle manner! She is targeting the lessons to my needs and my progress is swift. I highly, highly recommend it. Feels like I have made a friend as well as gained a great tutor!"
"My son has been a student at Pro music for over 10 years. It is a caring and nurturing environment where everyone is treated with respect and treated as an individual. It has been a pleasure to watch the business grow as the success is very well deserved. Thank you for your support over the years. If you or your child wants to learn an instrument then this is the place where you will be encouraged and allow to develop."
