Lesson Options

Private lessons are available to anyone in the community. No auditions are required, and lessons are taught to students of all ages and levels at times that are mutually convenient for both the student and instructor.

Private lessons are weekly 30 minute, 45 minute or 1 hour of one-on-one instruction time throughout the academic year (September-June). Students may start at any time, subject to instructor availability.

Instructors are available to teach violin, cello & viola.

Lessons include the technique of the instrument, basic theory, best practice habits, and musical performance.

Lessons can be for personal enjoyment, to prepare for an audition, or to study for an exam (ie: RCM)

Students are eligible to participate in two recitals per year to develop and nurture performance skills.

Lessons are available in both English and French.


The Government of Canada’s Economic Action Plan unveiled a new Children’s Arts Tax Credit to provide up to $500 of eligible fees per child for qualifying children’s programs.  This credit is available for children under 16 years.  Our official receipts can be used for this credit.

When students are at an appropriate level of proficiency on their instrument, they are encouraged to consider becoming a member of the Sudbury Symphony Orchestra.
