Age 5is the best age for formal violin lessons. A 30-minute weekly lesson is perfect for students age 5 to 10. For older students a 1 hour weekly lesson may be more appropriate. Just remember that available practice time between lessons is an important factor to consider when deciding how long a student’s weekly lesson should be. Students who take a 1 hour lesson will be given more material to prepare for the next lesson and will require more practice time than the student taking a 30 minute weekly lesson. Another important consideration for a young student is the size of the instrument. It is very important that the instrument be sized to the students arm length. Therefore, younger students will require a smaller sized violin.
