At Nirvana Academy of Violin, we encourage our students to participate in the RCM exams and receive official certificates on their violin performance skills. 100% of our students have received passing grades and some have received the RCM’s Gold Medal. We prepare students with ear training, technical material and repertoires.

Private Violin Lessons

Private lessons are offered for students age 4-60. Students may take 1 or 2 lessons per week depending on their capacity, age, and their commitment level. 30 minute lessons are usually more suitable for age 4 or 5. Lessons are focused both on Suzuki method (ear training) and traditional method (note reading).

Children’s Violin Orchestra

Children’s violin orchestra lessons are provided twice a month as a supplementary program to the private lessons, however, students experience other types of musical activities apart from performing together. These lessons demand students to listen to each other with high concentration which as a result their listening ability increase tremendously.

Orchestra and University Audition

Many violin students who get to a higher level of performance want to audition for different orchestras and advance their performance skills in a group setting. Nirvana Academy of Violin is the place where can prepare these students to achieve their goals.

At the Nirvana Academy of Violin, students perform at 2 prestigious violin recitals every year. Recitals are combinations of solo performances (students level 4+) and group performance (Suzuki students level 1-3). Students have 2 violin group rehearsals before each recital.
