Violin Lessons In Vancouver

Bow like a Boss

At Horizon, we believe mastering one of the most challenging string instruments should be a source of joy and inspiration. Whether you’re preparing for Beethoven’s Sonata No. 9 or practicing for a country fair hoedown, we’ll make sure you do it with a smile on your face.

Private Violin Lessons for Adults

Horizon School of Music is located in the heart of Vancouver, BC, offering easy access to transit and gritty views of the cityscape. It’s a friendly safe space with plenty of natural light designed to inspire violin players of all levels. But if you prefer finessing your fingering from the comfort of your own home or if your current location/schedule doesn’t permit in-studio lessons, we offer remote tutorials via video chat platforms. Whatever setting works best for you, works best for us.

Learn with the Best

Our classically trained instructors are highly accomplished and widely considered some of finest fiddlers in the field. They are just as passionate about playing violin as they are about teaching violin. Backed by years of stage, studio and classroom experience, our virtuosos use proven instructional strategies and a positive approach that inspire students to reach their full potential. Disciplined, but never dull. Precise, but not pretentious. Schooled, but not stuffy. It’s a new way.

Schedule at Your Convenience

At Horizon, our goal is to make violin lessons accessible to everyone, regardless of how busy they are with work, family and other commitments. That’s why we offer a flexible, stress-free scheduling platform that allows students to confirm, cancel and reschedule lessons as they see fit. No commitment, no contract, no getting locked into the same allotted time week in, week out – just the freedom and joy that comes from learning this iconic instrument on your own timeline.

Personalize Your Goals

To ensure every student gets the support and instruction they need to meet his/her particular goals, Horizon offers complimentary consultations. Our instructors are experts at tailoring their teaching methods so that students can achieve their musical objectives. So, if you’re an old-school violinist looking to build on your formal education with some new creative bowing techniques or a beginner looking to start with a simple four-line folk song, we got you covered!

When I have a lesson with Eli, its more like just jamming with a friend. He allows me to learn what I want to learn, not only what he wants to teach.

My face time lessons are easier than expected and I love that there are different guitar style clinics available so I can learn different genres.

...The co-teaching with Eli on the monthly Metal Consortium has got to be the best metal group class ever to happen. I will close by saying I used to hate Mondays. I have my lessons on Mondays.... it's now my favourite day of the week.
