Welcome to the Kodurand Violin Studio!


"Passing on our many years' experience of teaching at the highest levels is both a priviledge and a passion. We believe that teaching is more than just learning to play the notes, it's about giving you the knowledge to reach your potential.


Our approach looks at many aspects, from violin technique and development, to learning how to practise, playing without tension and helping you prepare for a performance, exam, music course or competition. We will keep you informed of local concerts and recommendations by sending you regular updates, and tips for online learning resources. For children we have a special selection of musical games and repertoire which is very popular with our young students!


Learning the violin should be fun, enjoyable and inspirational no matter what your age or ability, and we take pride in giving you a highly dedicated approach which allows you to improve your ability and your confidence.


Thanks for visiting us - we look forward to helping you discover your musical potential."


Liv-Marie & Simon Kodurand
