Fee Structure

Depending on your budget, your capacity on how long you can handle the class, your eagerness to learn faster, you can choose different lesson lengths (30 minutes, 45 minutes, and 1 hour) on your individual lessons. 30 minute lessons are mostly recommended for 4-5 year old students; however, many young students show high tolerance and therefore 45 minute lessons are perfectly suitable for them as well. 45 minute lessons are the most common lesson length for beginners and intermediates. Advanced students must take minimum of 1 hour per week. Many adult students choose 1 hour lessons as well and as a result their improvement is faster.

If you are a couple and you wish to learn together, please contact us and we will arrange a class that would suit your needs the best.

Testimonials

Nirvana taught my twin daughters violin from the ages of 6 through 10, and taught my youngest daughter piano for several years. As a teacher of music to children, Nirvana struck the right balance between good humour and strong discipline. My children always enjoyed their lessons and showed steady progress. They looked forward to their time with Nirvana, and appreciated the additional materials she brought in (music videos online, additional pieces to listen to, composition software, etc.). Nirvana placed a lot of emphasis on technique, posture, breathing and stance, as well as making sure they developed an ear for the music and learned to read it. As a non-musical parent, it was nevertheless very clear to me that my children were picking up a lot from their teacher, and that she was encouraging in them an appreciation and enthusiasm for music beyond just the learning of an instrument.

I would not hesitate to recommend Nirvana as a violin teacher; indeed, I have sent several of my friends her way over the years!

Nirvana is an enthusiastic teacher with a wealth of knowledge. She helped me grow as a violinist in many facets.

Nirvana is a wonderful teacher. She is a professional with an open minded and encouraging attitude. Her lessons were challenging but I enjoyed them very much!

Nirvana was our daughters violin teacher for 2 years. Our daughter connected immediately with Nirvana and excelled under her guidance. We found Nirvana to be very personable, inspiring and creative in the way she taught. Nirvana is highly recommended by our family!

Nirvana is an experienced teacher, whose passion and musical sensitivity enhance each lesson. She always went the extra mile to enrich my lessons, providing additional resources and getting to know me on a personal level. She was well attuned to my personal needs and goals, so that I was both challenged to improve and unafraid to make mistakes. Overall, I had a wonderful experience as her student!

Nirvana interested me in Violin even more than I was already interested.
