Preparing to make great music is difficult, but ESOM students like it. Esom's Violin Department provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date string instruction available anywhere. We offer individualized violin education, as well as professional instructors who are experts in the field, course work specifically geared to improve your talents and abilities, and a variety of performing opportunities.

What we teach

Music Theory – Students will cover a variety of music theory topics during their violin classes. The staff, clefs, note names, rhythms, rests, intervals, meter and time signatures, key signatures, and dynamics are the first things we teach. Scales and chords (harmony), melodies, phrases, and musical forms will all be covered. Our violin lessons are carefully crafted to cover everything from the most basic scales to the most complex notation, whether you are a complete beginner or already know a lot about music theory.

Sight Reading – Our exercises are designed to help students improve their short-term musical memory so that they can read ahead while playing a piece and perform it correctly when they reach to that area. Highly accomplished musicians can frequently sight-read silently, which means they can look at printed music and hear it in their thoughts without having to play or sing it. Sight-reading ability is necessary of all musicians since it makes learning new compositions more easier and faster. As a result, students are more likely to attempt to learn new pieces of music on their own, resulting in better and more well-rounded performers.

Collaboration – These abilities include being able to play at the same tempo and style as others without the use of a metronome or conductor, listening to multiple musical lines at once, and expressing thoughts and making decisions with another musician. Playing chamber music allows a student to become more well-rounded and self-sufficient. Students also learn problem-solving and communication skills, both of which are essential for being a successful musician.

Improvisation – Learning to improvise needs a thorough understanding of music theory, excellent listening skills, and the ability to express oneself impulsively. It's a fun and unique method to play the violin, as well as a terrific opportunity to explore various musical genres including pop, jazz, and folk music. Students will learn how to improvise over chords and generate their own musical ideas, which they will be able to enunciate on the violin, in our violin courses.

Technique – Students can achieve their musical and artistic goals on the instrument if they have solid technique from the start.


  • The ability to communicate well in English is required.

Frequently Asked Questions – Violin

No, we're exceptional at educating people who have never had a music lesson before.
Yes, we educate both beginners and advanced musicians.
Yes, we have a huge number of adult students, both novices and seasoned professionals. Methods for older novices are available.
No. With experienced players, we strive to pick up where they left off. It may be important in some circumstances to go back and correct undesirable behaviors that have developed through time or through informal learning.
Kids, as we all know, are sponges when it comes to learning new things, but they require more supervision when it comes to practicing and the fine motor skills element of playing a musical instrument. Hand and finger positioning and arching, posture, and difficulty with relaxing while playing are all things to consider. Adults tend to have more defined musical goals, have a better track record of sticking to them, and are the ones who pay for the music lessons. As a result, they have great self-esteem. They are grownups, so finding time to practice or organizing and prioritizing their time might be a challenge.
No, but you'll need one for the practice sessions that follow each lesson.
In the first lesson, you'll be playing 'something'! Having said that, learning to play music that sounds 'complete' takes time. In as little as a few months, new music students can be playing something familiar. The amount of time it takes to attain your goals is determined by how much time you put in and your objectives.
No. In our many years of teaching, we've discovered that group lessons are a terrible method to learn the violin. For this reason, we specialize in private lessons.
Yes. We provide open enrollment all year. Because these are private classes, you can begin whenever you choose.
No. The majority of violins are not available in left-handed models. All of the technique books are written for right-handed individuals. It is true that a violin can be turned over.

I am by the name of Basiima Edward Collins and would like to share a few things I know in Esom School Of Music. I am a term one student but what I have had in this wonderful school is mind blowing because I am learning so fast more than I was before joining Esom School Of Music. The courses I offered are; Audio production and Piano, this is giving me an easy and quicker way to make beats since my desire is to become a best producer in the world and trust me, I am achieving that as I am talking. There are also a variety of other courses you can take e.g Video production, sound engineering, vocal training, saxophone playing, Violin, Guitars (acoustic, solo and bass) Drums, to mention but a few. So if anyone out there is looking for a best music school, simply come to Esom School Of Music because all your music desire will be fully achieved. Thank you and may God bless you.

It's a good school with brilliant teachers. However, most of the active teaching focuses on the practical side of music, while the theory side of things is largely left to the student as self-study. A structure for the teaching, assessment and feedback regarding music theory as its own subject should be developed and then the school will really shine and produce knowledgeable musicians with a true mastery of their art. The location is a bit inconvenient, being in the middle of town, but the classes are worth the journey. In general, yes to Esom.
