Which instrument should I play?


​At Silver Strings, we focus on teaching violin, viola, and cello. Each instrument has its own personality and sound. Read more below about the ages at which we begin each instrument to help you determine which might be best for you.
All string instruments are fairly inexpensive to rent, and children can play in groups, orchestras, and often at school. The violin has the highest pitch and often plays melodies in an orchestra. The viola is similar to the violin, but has a deeper sound. The cello is much larger than the violin and viola, and has a gorgeous rich tone quality. In an orchestra, the violin is like a soprano in choir, the viola is like the altos, and the cello is like the tenor/bass section.

Each instrument has a unique challenges. For example, the violin has to be supported under the chin, so as the child grows they are constantly having to adjust the way they hold the instrument and stand. The cello, which is always played sitting, has very large strings that are hard to press down at first.

Frequency of lessons

During the fall and spring, we offer both weekly and bi-weekly lessons. During the summer we offer weekly, bi-weekly, and a pack of 6 lessons that can be scheduled at any available time.

We typically recommend beginners start with weekly lessons as students learn much faster with weekly lessons. Students tend to practice more regularly with regular weekly lessons, so progress is also more consistent. Especially for beginners, two weeks is a long time to go between lessons, and mistakes can become habits in the span of fourteen days. It is also important for students to be held accountable for their progress by having a regular lesson. However, some adult students find bi-weekly lessons work better for their personal and work schedules so we offer this option as well. If you need help deciding which option is best for you/your child, please email us with any questions!


Do you have studio recitals?

Yes. At the end of each semester, students have the option of playing on solo recitals, where each student plays an individual piece accompanied by a pianist or by their teacher. None of these are required, but they are fun, enriching experiences for the students.

We also occasionally offer casual recitals for adult students to perform for each other and group recitals for younger students, where they can play with other kids their age.


Suzuki specific questions:
box violins, parent learning, group classes



​Do you use box violins for young beginners?

We typically do not. If we do use box violins (cardboard instruments that do not make sound and are used to teach posture), it will not be for long (a few lessons), and only for very young students such as three year olds.


Should parents learn along with the child?

Learn an instrument with a their child can be very motivational for the child! They naturally want to imitate them. Practicing is not a chore, music making is a family activity and part of the all-important daily routine. It is also encouraging to the child to see that the parent also makes mistakes. I do not require parents to take lessons, but this can be both an enjoyable family activity and helpful for the child.

Younger children often need help with lesson assignments and parents often find it easier to help when they have some playing experience. 


What is your stance on group classes?

Musicians often play with others so group classes are an important part of becoming a musician. In group classes, students learn how to listen to each other, count, and cooperate musically.

We don’t currently offer any group classes, however there are many wonderful youth symphonies in the area, such as Front Range Youth Symphony and Greater Boulder Youth Symphony where students can learn these skills.
