Violin lessons with Mrs Somerset

Mrs Somerset has been teaching with us for several years.  She comes to us from Bristol Plays Music.  Mrs Somerset teaches on Fridays in our St Christopher Room, and provides small group sessions for 30 minutes. 

Children can start lessons from year 2. 


Children do not use violins in the first few weeks of starting lessons so that they can concentrate on learning the correct fingerwork before applying it to the instrument.  When your child needs an instrument Mrs Somerset will let you know if we have one available for you to borrow (for the first term) or whether you will be required to purchase a violin.

It will also be necessary for you to purchase files and music through Mrs Somerset.  She will contact you directly about this.
