VIOLA LESSONS IN MAPLE GROVE, MN AND BLAINE, MN
VIOLA LESSONS AS COOL AS YOUR KIDS
We provide private viola lessons once a week for elementary age kids through adults.
What you’ll get:
1. Friendly, competent, and educated teachers who LOVE to teach.
2. Viola lessons are catered to you. We personalize each lesson based on your personal goals and expectations of viola lessons.
3. Learn proper technique, reading and ear training, music theory, and sight reading
4. Play songs you love on viola. Our teachers know that students want to play songs and styles they love. We’ll add music based on students personal preferences. (hymns, pop, worship, rock, jazz, classical, etc.)
With locations in Osseo, MN (right outside of Maple Grove) and Spring Lake Park, MN (just south of Blaine), Spark School of Music offers private 1-on-1 viola lessons to students 5+. After your child gets comfortable playing songs in the practice room, they are eligible to take it to the stage and join our Rock Band class in addition to their normal viola lesson.
YOUR FIRST VIOLA LESSON
At a minimum, we do recommend that each viola student has an instrument they can practice on at home. If you are struggling to find a viola or don’t know where to start, we have resources to help you find the right instrument for your family.
Generally speaking, unlike violins, violas do not come in as many different sizes for your child as they grow. We recommend students to be 5 or 6 years old before starting viola, but exceptions are made for students who are capable of handling the instrument. The viola is held in the same way as the violin, but larger. Therefore, it is sometimes best suited for students who are already familiar with the violin.
If purchasing a viola is not in your budget, there are stores around the area that rent instruments. You can expect to spend about $25/month to rent an instrument.
