Private Lessons and Programs

Private lessons

  Weekly violin/viola lessons of 30, 45 or 60 minutes in length are offered here at the studio. 

Regular lessons follow the school year calendar.

Summer lessons are offered as well.

Contact me at  acostello84@comcast.net for information on viola/violin lessons for all ages.

Saturday Parties

Approximately 4 times a year, I host violin parties on Saturdays here at the studio for all students. These parties are great for students preparing for auditions, getting over "stage fright", testing out performance techniques, playing music with friends, making friends, and measuring progress for the session. Students will play individually and together. All ages welcome, this is very informal. Ice cream sundaes will follow! Parents of little ones are welcome. 

Fiddle Club

For students with 3 or more years of experience. Join us two Sunday evenings a month, from 7:00-8:00pm, for a fiddle session! We learn one or two new tunes each meeting, and review older ones as well. We will explore Scottish and Irish tunes, as well as some Old Timey, Quebecois, Bluegrass and Eastern European selections. And there are always homemade cookies!

Charles River String Camp

 This day camp experience offers small ensemble groups for violin, viola, cello and bass. Groups are organized by ability (beginner, intermediate and advanced), and are meant to give students the experience of playing together in groups of between 4 to 6 players without a conductor. Students learn leadership skills while working on sight reading techniques. Games at appropriate age levels throughout the session give them experience with theory and musical interpretation in a fun environment.

Please see separate Charles River String Camp page for more information.

Audition Prep Saturday classes

 Come play through your prepared audition pieces, scales and etudes for a mock adjudicator. We will go through all aspects of the organization's expectations and give you constructive advice on your progress toward audition day. There may be other students here as well, so that you can give each other feedback.

These classes will be held before all area auditions throughout the year.
