Learning to Play the Violin

30 / 60 minute Private Lessons  |  $112 / $224 per month

The violin is arguably the most widely known instrument on the planet. Its harmonic tones are appropriate for a wide range of musical styles from quick and furious to gentle and heartbreaking. 

 

Playing the violin is the most vulnerable form of music-making, and it requires both mechanical and emotional sensitivity. Allegro provides violin lessons in Ottawa that help you appreciate the authenticity of the medium as well as its limitations. We also help students see how this beautiful instrument presents the composer with a challenge that must be met with creativity and ingenuity.

 

The violin is essentially a sounding box with strings that are vibrated by a bow. The range of touch and harmonic enunciation, made possible with the bow, is what makes the violin so uniquely expressive. The bow is the violin's "soul"—its main medium of speech.

 

Many factors come into play when a violin is played: pitch, tone consistency, and rhythmic synchronization. Controlling these elements is up to the violinist. Playing solo puts the violinist's command over the instrument to test. However, playing violin solo tends to bring out a personal ability in composers that isn't always apparent in orchestral music. 

 

Only the music's complexity and constraints (music must be meticulously tuned to the instrument) present a challenge to the violinist when they desire to create an enchanting aura of sacred harmony with the audience. When all goes according to plan, the result is a rare combination of mechanics and passion in musical tones.
