I teach violin, piano and theory to students of all ages and abilities.  I take violin students up to Grade 8 and piano and theory students up to Grade 5.

Violin PlayerLessons are 30 minutes in length for beginners up to Grade 4 or 5 and will usually include 10 minutes of theory.  Thereafter lesson lengths will increase to 45 minutes and then an hour for the higher grades.  For those wishing to take practical exams there is a requirement for Grade 5 theory before practical exams of Grade 6 and above can be taken with the Associated Boards of the Royal Schools of Music.

As you reach the higher grades then lessons need to be longer to cover all the material and so an hour is necessary.
