Violin Teachers


Learning to play violin is a very gratifying pursuit.  It is difficult, but once you get the basics down, the fun never stops!


Our violin teachers are interviewed and qualified to be able to teach expertly on their instrument.  If you want to get violin playing basics, look no further.  We check references and their history.  We make sure they have received the proper education. 


Learn how to play a violin with ease.  You can get basic violin lessons, or advanced if you have already played awhile and are just looking for a new teacher.  See our Finding A Good Violin Teacher page for some excellent tips on finding a good violin teacher. 


Each teacher has their own violin methods they use.  If you prefer something specific, be sure to discuss this with the potential teacher.  Some teachers are more suited to give violin lessons for kids, while others may prefer adults.


We have both Suzuki and traditional teachers.  Just indicate on the form which type you would like.

Small Ensembles


For your special occasions, we have many types of small string ensembles, and other types of ensembles including strings.  Each of these groups play different types of music, including classical, jazz, pop, country and hard rock.  You should consider what type of event you have, and what atmosphere you desire.  Then you need to figure out the role that the ensemble will carry on.


While contacting the group’s event coordinator, be sure to ask the groups specialty, and of course rates.  If it is important to you to have special requests, be sure to bring this up as well.  Some groups could charge a higher fee to arrange a new piece of music that is not already arranged for their ensemble type.

Violin Shops


We also have relationships with violin shops in Alaska.  Each of these shops perform different functions. 


Some might provide online violin sales or in store sales, some give advice about buying a violin. 


Others might offer violin repair and bow rehairing.  Some are into violin making.  Still other can do violin restoration. 


Look for the specialty shops that are electric violin manufacturer, or offer electric violin sales.


If renting a violin is what you’re after, be sure to request a shop that offers violin rentals, because some do not offer this service.


Some shops might do a combination or all of these services.  If you require a specific task, it is best to let us know so we can direct you to the best location for your needs.

 Youth Orchestras and Other Educational Organizations


We strive to include all youth orchestras and other educational organizations in Alaska.  These are a very important part of a musical education. I learned many things about how to prepare for rehearsals, and what is expected of me, before I  was accepted into my first professional orchestra.  Some orchestras do not hold their musicians to a high standard, but I think most do.


Find A Youth Orchestra



If you help run a youth orchestra, then we want to hear from you.  Please tell us about  your orchestra and what sets it apart from others.  If you have links to the applications that we can post online, we will do that.

 Summer Camps, Festivals and Institutes


We all look forward to the summers when we can travel to different places and meet new people.  Summer music camps are for forming new friendships, gaining new musical experience and just having fun.  I always enjoyed going to the same camps.  But I know there are a lot of you out there that want new camps, festivals, and institutes to try.

Musical Support Groups and Organizations


These groups function in special ways in our communities.  They all hold different roles but in general are very useful.  Some give out scholarships while others may help to locate scholarships for you.  Some give funding for different events while others may give time.  Some help with other types of financial aid for music education.  Some can help professionals.  These organizations are a great help if you know about them and use them.
