Pro-Am Strings is a community of string enthusiasts, both amateurs and professionals. Welcome! We hope you come and join us. We provide online violin lessons and viola lessons in the form of technique videos, fact sheets, webinars, Skype lessons, video exchange lessons and repertoire lists.
In our busy lives, we are increasingly geared to convenience. You may not want to go out again after a busy day’s work, you may want to take your instrument on holiday with you and practise your instrument while away, or you may live too far from a teacher to make lessons viable. These are just a few of the many reasons why our clients opt for violin lessons online. Our mission is to help you develop your playing and inspire you to get better on your instrument. Whatever your musical goals, whether you play casually or learn to play more seriously, we are here to help you with your bowing, left hand technique and anything else you want to learn. Tell us about your playing or send us your photos – we would love to share your experiences with other players.
For individual feedback on your playing, do consider our Skype lessons, which can be arranged at a time to suit you, in your own home. On the Skype lesson page, you will find a bookable calendar, so it is easy to spot free lesson slots. All abilities are catered for: whether you are a complete beginner or ready to hit the concert stage, you can rely on Pro-Am Strings to offer encouragement and support. Some of our customers use Pro-Am Strings as a strings clinic, to patch up any bits of technique they want to improve; others go through our video lessons one by one and learn to play from the very beginning. If you are looking for something and you cannot find it, please email us and we will do our best to create it for you.
Recently, we have added video exchange lessons to our campus of online materials. You may send us a video of your playing, we will assess your playing and send you a video back, containing constructive suggestions on how you might improve your playing.
Pro-Am Strings also has a global network of Associate Teachers, who provide locally based tuition on violin, viola or cello. All are friendly and approachable people and experts in their field.
