Somerset Violin Lessons | Bristol Violin Lessons - Kodurand Violin Studio

Violin Lessons

We believe that successful lessons require the most dedicated teachers with a friendly yet encouraging atmosphere. Our lessons contain three essential elements; a structured plan, an inspiring approach and a supportive environment.We will teach you how to practise and develop a sound technique so you can progress by yourself, but most importantly of all we aim to give you a sense of accomplishment and joy in your achievements!


Our students vary from young children to mature adults (our oldest to date was 91!), and teachers wishing to develop their own skills. We are also one of the few teaching studios in the South West to offer both modern (standard) and baroque violin lessons.


We suggest all students book an initial trial lesson so we can assess your level, discuss goals and make sure you have a comfortable setup, ensuring the best possible start.


Online Violin Lessons

We now offer violin lessons through online video teaching to students of all ages and levels. If you're not able to travel to lessons as frequently as you would like, or if you would simply like to top up lessons in the holidays then this may be for you!

For more information on video teaching please get in touch via our contact page.


Student concert

In December 2018 we will be holding our first student concert. For those who would like to participate this will be a friendly and informal concert, and a unique opportunity to perform whether in preparation for an exam, a competition, an audition, or simply to enjoy the wonderful experience of performing to a live audience.

"With Liv's skilled teaching my weak bow arm was corrected, my technique greatly improved. Liv has a great way of identifying weak points and giving clear solutions in a way that makes lessons fun and worthwhile. I highly recommend Liv as a violin teacher."
