Violin, Fiddle, Viola, and Cello Lessons for Children and Adults in Seattle!

 

Are you looking for strings lessons in a clean, safe environment with university trained instructors?

Then The Ballard Academy is for you. And the best part is that you can register at any time of the year! Our professional facility has sound dampened rooms with windows in every door. All of our instructors are university trained and have undergone a criminal background check for your piece of mind. And we always have a front desk person to assist you. In addition, our academy is free from the distractions present in home lessons and lessons offered in the back of noisy music stores.

 

Our strings program offers private instruction in violin, viola or cello.  Our private violin lessons start as young as age 5.  Due to the size of the instrument, most cello lessons start at 10 years of age or older.  We have students of all ages from adults to children.  For younger children we highly encourage a parent to sit in on the lesson to help the student at home with things such as posture and hand positioning.  Our violin, viola and cello teachers have university or college degrees in their instrument and many perform regularly with local orchestras or bands. Basic restrictions are usually due strictly to the size of the child – e.g. hand size for piano or lung capacity for brass and woodwinds.
