Program Information

Persian violin is a very in-demand instrument, and we will offer your child many new and exciting musical opportunities. We offer instruction to violin students of every level, every age, and every genre. All students are taught basic instrumental technique, posture, technical exercises, radif* and playing Persian repertoires.

Each online Persian violin lesson takes place between one teacher and one student for either 30, 45 or 60 minutes. For children's sessions, parents can attend their child's classes.

*Radif is a collection of 300-350 melodic pieces, each one up to 3 minutes in length, used as a basis for improvisation.


Our goal is the development of our students to their highest musical level through private lessons. Creating the correct foundation for technique and appropriate repertoire is the utmost important thing. Our amazing violin faculty takes care of utilizing elements of different teaching methods that work best for each student. Beginner students will start with the fundamentals, including the right way to hold the violin, correct bow hold and finger placement, reading music, rhythm, bowing techniques, and learning songs. Advanced and experienced students continue to progress with increased proficiency in techniques and significant traditional repertoire. Our violin curriculum covers the following subjects:

  • Note reading and recognition
  • Counting, rhythm reading
  • Technique (scales, arpeggios, trill)
  • Sight reading
  • Rudiments of Theory
