Pros and Cons of Private Violin Lessons [Video]

Is it ever a bad thing to learn a musical instrument? That all depends on your perspective. Consider if a young music student has only one experience making music and they happen to be taking violin lessons. What’s the best case scenario? Do you find a prodigy? What’s the worst case? The student figures out their not a prodigy.

There are two sides to this. On a positive note, millions of students worldwide enter music with a violin largely in part because of the Suzuki Method. But on a negative note, how many of those students stay with violin versus those that quit. I play cello and understand the immense difficulty at play. So what do I think?


I think that if you are a GREAT violin teacher or your students have access to a GREAT private lesson teacher, then there’s nothing better… You can help them out even if you aren’t a violinist. Check out this video explaining what you need to know.
