The violin can be a challenging instrument, as can other string instruments like cello, bass, and viola. But with a qualified and experienced teacher, you’ll be surprised at the progress you can make. Cixi Music Studio teaches children, adults, beginners, and experienced violinists, and we would love to welcome you into our musical community.
Learn from scratch, perfect your audition material, or prepare for a new role as the violinist in a rock band - whatever your goals may be, we’ll have you competing for first chair. Contact us to set up a trial lesson, or get in touch for more information about our curriculum and life at our studio.
Fundamentally Sound, Holistic Violin Lessons in Houston
We prepare our violin students for orchestral playing, participation in contemporary ensembles, solo pursuits, and recreational music-making.The fundamentals of technique and music theory remain the same, and each of our students receives the same well-rounded education.
You or your child will learn how to properly hold the instrument, tune the strings, bow correctly, and navigate the fingerboard. You will also learn how to read notes in the treble and bass clefs, and you’ll be able to identify other elements of notation, like forte, piano, crescendos, decrescendos, and more.
As you progress in lessons, we’ll introduce vibrato and other more advanced techniques like extensions, contractions, pizzicato, and double stops. If you practice consistently, you’ll be playing advanced technique, harmonics and more before you know it.
Of course, all of our students leave their lessons as better musicians, not just violinists or cellists. You’ll understand key signatures, time signatures, intervals, chords, and learn a strong sense of rhythm.
Prepare For Auditions Or Other String Applications
Does your child have a Houston Youth Symphony audition coming up? We would be happy to help them learn contrasting solos, etudes, or orchestral excerpts that may be required in their audition. We can also work on sight reading, as that’s a common request in ensemble auditions.
Or are you an adult who would like to audition for the Houston Civic Symphony, a local chamber strings group, or even a country band? We’ll focus on that goal in your lessons, and we won’t make you play Samuel Barber literature on the violin if you’d prefer to focus on Blake Shelton.
Other bass, cello, viola, or violin students at Cixi Music Studio simply want to enjoy playing the violin at home on their own. This is a fantastic hobby to pursue, and we will give you the tools you’ll need to learn your favorite solos or songs at home.
Violin Lessons For All Ages in Houston
Violin Lessons For Kids in Houston
We enjoy working with children at our studio, and our lessons are fun, engaging, and age-appropriate. We encourage you to enroll the young beginning violinists in your family in our group classes - we have fun materials, activities that allow students to work together, and of course, a focus on excellence.
We also teach private one-on-one violinists to kids at our Houston location, and we will make sure your child has a solid musical foundation. We push our young students to accomplish great things, but we will never move too fast for your child. We won’t skip and steps, and we don’t leave gaps in our students’ knowledge.
Violin Lessons For Adults
Adult violinists (or aspiring violinists) from all walks of life take lessons at Cixi Music Studio, and we would welcome you at our school. Teachers are always respectful of your goals with strings - you can learn a handful of your favorite tunes, learn how to sight read, work on creating a more beautiful tone, or another specific goal if you would like.
A Community-Inspired Atmosphere
Cixi Music Studio holds recitals for our students each year, and families and students always enjoy meeting each other and forming long-lasting relationships. We encourage our students to share the music they are learning with friends, family, and their peers here at the school, and as a result, we enjoy an encouraging and musical atmosphere.
