How You’ll Learn

Private Lessons

The backbone of every student’s musical journey is the instruction they receive privately. While it might be fun to take group classes with old ladies in spin-class and yoga, in violin you can’t accomplish much without direct attention. Learning the violin takes a particular level of detail you won’t get if you shared your time with others.

Parent-Child Package

Here at the Murphy Music Academy, we insist upon parental involvement in the lessons. While for most parents this involves dutifully attending each lesson, taking notes, and practicing with their child each day, it can also be incredibly helpful and inspiring for the parent to learn alongside their child.


Parents Say…

“Mr. Murphy is a phenomenal violinist and an amazing teacher. With his instruction and recommended exercises we are both progressing much faster than I expected… I highly recommend!”

— Meredith (parent-child package)
