Violin lessons at Houston Music Academy is a rewarding experience. We are focused on developing you not only as a violinist, but a complete musician. On the violin side, there's technique, competence, theory and tunes. On the musician side you put it all together and will have opportunities to play/jam with your fellow students and faculty. Exchanging ideas, working out your musical thoughts in a friendly setting.
At Houston Music Academy, we encourage you to start your journey with baby steps. Many people who have tried violin in the past, find this slow, easy approach very helpful. We are here to help from the very basics to advanced.
