Having the right violin teacher is everything
When it comes to learning the violin, the tutor will be by far the most important and influential figure in a student’s musical development, so having the right person is paramount to becoming the best musician one can be and actually having fun in the process!
One of the things that makes learning with Lycaeum so great is the tremendous amount of care we take when we select the relevant tutor for each student.
We are good at what we do
97% of our students continue with their recommended tutors after the first session
86% of our students continue studying with their recommended tutor after their first 12 months of learning
How it works
We will set up a time to speak over the phone and learn about your musical likes and dislikes, your experience, and aspirations. The chat usually lasts 10-15 minutes, its goal being to determine exactly what kind of tutor and teaching style will work for your best.
After the call, we will email you with what we believe will be our best tutor for you, based on the chat above. You can look over their CV, history, and call up their references.
If you like what you see, we can organise a first lesson whenever it is convenient for you. If you like it and wish to continue, you can arrange further lessons directly with your tutor.
Our violin teachers
All our violin tutors are professionals or late stage students from London’s top conservatoires, such as the Royal Academy of Music and the Royal College of Music, and are all DBS checked, so you know you will be in very good hands!
In order to teach violin lessons for Lycaeum, our tutors must first pass a series of thorough personal checks and interviews, and show the relevant experience and expertise not only as professionally trained violin virtuosos, but also as tutors in various educational settings. Additional skills beyond mere competency with the violin are a must, such as patience, organisation, and very good empathetic listening
We only work with the top 10% violin tutors in London!
Violin lessons online
If price is a concern, or if it is simply not convenient for you to welcome a tutor into your home, we also offer private online lessons from only £12/session – the most affordable rate in the UK for this level of tuition!
Our online violin tutors will create a bespoke learning experience for each child to help them attain their musical goals. All our online violin students will of course still benefit from our great range of events, concerts, competitions, and group courses.
Violin lessons at home
While learning violin through our online sessions is perfectly viable, our private at home lessons cost from only £32/session – providing you with an even more detailed and guided learning experience.
Your tutor will visit your home at any reasonable time that is convenient for you, as often as you wish. The lesson times are flexible and amendable, with only a 24h notice period being required.
Getting a violin
We can help our students find a violin that suits them, helping you make the best decision when investing in a musical instrument.
Our office staff have excellent technical knowledge, and will be able to make suggestions based on their expansive experience as both teachers and former students themselves.
Worried about purchasing a violin at the beginning of your child’s musical journey? We offer all our new students a free violin for their first month, delivered to their home, and after that is costs from only £6.5/mth in rent for as long as you need it!

Events, competitions, and concerts

We even have a musical double decker bus where our students can have workshops and concerts across London!
In a regular school year we offer: weekly group workshops in various parts of London, three concerts - where our students can showcase their progress in front of their friends and family, and two student competitions with cash prizes to give our pupils something tangible to work towards alongside more regular ABRSM exams. We keep music exciting!
Who we are
Lycaeum music is a service focused on delivering specialised music tuition at home, online, or in group settings to children and adults across London. We have been featured in the local media on numerous occasions, even being on featured on prime-time BBC Radio London three times so far!
We have been particularly successful with the MusicOnWheels social inclusion project, where we bought a double decker bus and converted it into a musical space, taking it to various areas of London to deliver musical education free at point of use to underprivileged children in London, in partnership with Brent, Westminster, and the Arts Council. A 6min presentation video made by Emmy award winning film-maker Joe Pavlo is available here.
