Our violin lessons for adults take place weekly on a set day and time via Zoom, Skype, FaceTime or another provider of your choice. (We usually use Zoom. It is free, easy-to-use and we can record the lessons for you to re-study in the future.)

Online Violin Institute offers flexible remote violin lessons that are available in three different durations: 30, 45, or 60 minutes. You can start your lessons at any point in the year, and we will work with you to find a suitable day and time based on your timezone. Contact our manager, Stefan, at to schedule your lessons.

Our violin lessons for adults are customised to suit your specific needs and preferences, and you can opt to take either the ABRSM or Trinity graded exams. However, we understand that many of our students play the violin for personal enjoyment, and the decision to pursue examinations is entirely optional.

At Online Violin Institute, we don’t follow a set syllabus. Instead, we adapt our lessons to meet the unique needs of each individual student. Our lessons run on a rolling monthly basis, and if you wish to discontinue your lessons, we require one month’s notice.

We also offer introductory lessons for those who would like to try before committing to a regular monthly program. In addition, we provide extra improvement or intensive lessons to those who want to make faster progress or prepare for an exam or performance.

If you require longer weekly sessions, such as 90 or 120 minutes per week, please feel free to contact us, and we will create a custom schedule that suits your needs.
