Sweet Symphony offers Violin Lessons to children of all ages.

“I’ve been taking violin lessons with Ray…since February. I’ve found him to be a great teacher and would highly recommend him. I’m definitely a mature student, having tried to teach myself for a few years after taking early retirement before looking around for lessons and finding Sweet Symphony just a few minutes drive from my house. I’m very glad they were there!”
