Private Violin Lessons Long Island, NY

Virtual Violin Lessons

Private violin lessons are the ideal way to learn how to learn a new instrument because you receive one-on-one attention. This allows you to learn at your own pace and without the intimidation one can feel when playing in front of others. We offer in-person violin lessons taught in our roomy, comfortable, and well-lit teaching studios. Our studios feature large windows which overlook our display floor, so if you’re a parent of a student, you can observe your child as they learn their lessons and master their new instrument.  

We offer virtual violin lessons for those who feel more comfortable learning from home. Our virtual lessons are taught by the same instructors as our in-person lessons and utilize all the same teaching techniques and materials.

At The Long Island Violin Shop, our aim is to help ensure that anyone who wants to learn how to play violin has the opportunity, whether that’s through in-person learning or virtual lessons.
