Violin Lessons for Beginner & Advanced Students

Violin lessons. Violins are capable of producing a variety of tones, the violin is the quintessential instrument associated with classical music. It’s also known to be used in folk, country and western, bluegrass and Irish music as well. Sound is made by drawing a bow over strings to make them vibrate and resonate sound. The violin is a truly beautiful instrument that students of various ages can enjoy. Learn violin with our music teachers to refine your skills and help you advance to the next level. You can attend violin classes at our East Brunswick Academy.

Learn About Your Violin. Getting Started.

Getting started with violin? Here are some tips regarding assembling and tuning your violin. We recommend having your music teacher help beginner students. Visit us at our East Brunswick Academy. We’ll help you.

The bridge is preset and held down by the tension of the strings. Some violins arrive new with the bridge not set at the correct height for the player. It may need to be adjusted.
Gradually tighten each string in the sequence of D-A-G-E (inner strings first, then outer strings). Tighten only 1-2 notes higher, one string at a time. Then tighten the next string. Do not tighten one string all the way to the desired pitch, as this will create unequal pressure on the bridge, which may cause it to fall.
The pegs can shrink or expand due to changes in temperature and humidity. When pegs shrink, they will not fit accordingly, simply apply rosin powder or peg peg drop oil on the pegs and peg hole. This will fill the gap and increase tension.
Floss the bow with rosin for around 2-3 minutes until you see the white powders come out from the horse hair before it can make a sound.
The sound post may not be in a fixed position, however is held in place for custom fitting to match the curvature of the instrument. During shipping, it’s possible for the sound post to come loose.
