It's been a great experience learning violin under Janice's guidance, a new and difficult instrument to pick up for me. She has been one of the best motivators. She is both a Friend and teacher to me. Superb tutor.

Learning the violin with Janice has been nothing short of an amazing experience. Accommodating and patient, she adjusts the lesson pacing to suit each student, making it a joy for anyone to jump into learning the violin. She makes learning music theory easy and fun, even for a beginner. During the first conversation, she took the effort to understand my needs, goals and even my preferred location, before pairing me with a teacher. You can be certain that you will be in good hands throughout your journey with the violin!

Previously, Sze Meen had violin lessons in a well-known music school without much progress. Thereafter, we found teacher Janice, who is very patient and experienced. Under her guidance, Sze Meen has made good progress and became more motivated to learn. Teacher Janice makes the effort to update on Sze Meen's progress after every lesson. I'm so glad to have found a good violin teacher for Sze Meen!

I have had around 6 lessons with Janice and it has been very helpful. In the past I had tried learning the violin by myself, on and off over 2 years or so, and made very little progress. As an adult learner with no prior musical training and blessed with poor body awareness, I do need plenty of guidance - and it's great to be able to get that. Janice emphasizes a lot on having the right posture, hold, bowing, and on being relaxed. She goes to great lengths to fix my errors, hand-holding till things are right. There is plenty to unlearn if you didn't start correctly. I also like the selection and order of her lessons and the pieces we play. Janice has initiated me into reading musical notation, which I had incorrectly presumed was very diffcult. This has made it possible for me to discover and learn new music to practise.

I have been attending going to Janice for violin classes for months now and it’s been a great experience. She has amazing personality, while she is fun personality, always smiling, she is on point with learning, which is amazing combination for a teacher. I started as a complete beginner and she is very patient with me all the time, even when i miss classes and practicing due to crazy work at my office. I would totally recommend Janice as a teacher for beginners as well as advanced. Btw she has been playing violin for decades, hence when she plays, it’s extremely motivating.

It is really helpful to have such a service to connect with teachers directly. I had first emailed many schools for lessons for an adult beginner, and had got almost no replies. Having been learning with Janice has been very helpful to correct my errors and learn the basics properly from the ground up. She is patient and her lessons have been a good mix of theory and practice, strengthened through exam preparations. I also appreciate the flexibility of being able to arrange timings at mutual convenience, as my schedule is unpredictable - don't think this would have been possible through a big-name school.

For my boy who sort of wonder off at time, firm and caring Teacher Xiao Qing makes sure he gets back and focus on his pieces. It helps that Teacher Xiao Qing is a mother herself with a young child and knows how to handle them.

My childhood dream was to play a violin. As a beginner, I searched for a violin teacher to properly demonstrate and explain to me the basics of playing a violin. I came across this website, Learn Violin Lessons Singapore, and inquire for a teacher. The response was so quick and gave me all the information that I needed like the materials that I need for the lessons, necessary fees and of course the quality of the violin. Overall, I love the service they have provided me. Currently, I am studying violin under Ms. Janice. She’s very accommodating, encouraging, patient and compassionate, which makes me enjoy playing violin. Keep Inspiring people.

She’s very nice and pleasant, and playing the violin is definitely more interesting and fun under her guidance. It’s also great as she’s patient if you’re slower and because of her flexible schedule. Highly recommended if you want a good experience while learning

Charlotte has a very short attention span. She would start to play punk or cry at her previous teacher after 15 minutes of every lesson. But never since she started learning from teacher Janice. She enjoys her violin lessons a lot and did not complain that the lesson is too long. We believe that Charlotte will progress more and excel under teacher Janice's guidance.~ Agnes&Max, parent of Charlotte

I really enjoyed my classes with Janice, she knows how to teach you step by step and her prices are reasonable. Thanks .
*Very long read* ~Getting there: From Chinatown Exit C, through the coffee shop (near OG and beside the Macdonalds), cross the road, climb the stairs (careful especially night or with cello. (Not part of review), enter the building, turn right, walk down the asile and you'll find LVL Music Academy. ~ It is very accessible with amenities near by. Store front is slightly different from the official website. Pretty cozy, simple yet elegant design. WA chat and Staff on-site Ms. Janice the principal, Ms. Patsy and the others are very professional and friendly. Always provide me detailed explanation of services and products. Products are of great quality! Also houses affordable practice room rentals. Being a cello student, I had a great time, Teacher Mr. Oleg is very patient and knowledgeable about music pieces and the cello. Within an hour, he provided deep teachings of the subject and gave plenty of demonstrations and corrections. I am always looking forward to each class. Even being a busy adult myself, they do try really hard to accomadate to my schedules. Also, I do recommend their lutheir service too! They are very experienced and also open to trying repairs of all kinds. I loved the work they did with my cello bridge and cello neck projection, made my cello sounded livelier than before. Even when asked to try rehair my Mongolian-Chinese (Morin Khuur/Matouqin- bought externally) instrument bow, which is unfamiliar to them, they are willing to try and stated there could be risks which I then signed the undertaking form but turns out, they made my bow better than before! Top-notch work! Will love to come back often to support their Lutherie! I really have no complaints. Do come by anytime! I had spent hours even within a day itself, just to practice my instruments in their quiet and conducive room. Thanks for reading this long post. Ignore any fake negative reviews!
I was looking for a mid range violin for my daughter but had no clue where to source for. I came to know about LVL Music Academy through a good review from google. During our visits, Ms Janice was very helpful and knowledgeable, she let my daughter try out different kinds of violins ranging from handmade European wood to Antique violins for my daughter to try out for herself. We spent about 1-2 hrs in the shop and my girl was finally able to find a violin that suits her. I myself as a newbie on violin also learned a lot from Ms Janice during our visit, thank you so much 😊
Cozy music school atop the hill. Teacher Janice was very approachable and helpful with our enquiries on violin repair. She was upfront about the charges and doesn’t hard sell. This is unlike many other schools out there that have become very commercialised.
We highly recommend this school. We were only in Singapore for a few months and our kids, aged 4 and 6, wanted to try learning piano. We are French and our kids have only a very basic understanding of English. Nevertheless the teacher at LVL Academy adapted to their level, they were excited to attend each lesson and told us proudly of what they had learned. The location of the school is very convenient, and we were given precise instructions about how to get their. Smooth communication via whatsapp weekly. The building the school is in is very interested too, kids were eager to explore all the schools and ateliers it held. Nothing but good things to say and highly recommend and hooe to study with you again in the future. Thank you Patsy and team, blessings and happy Christmas!
Dear Teacher Oleg, thank you for teaching me the cello. I really appreciate you - you are an amazing and the best teacher - always kind and patient to me and also one of the coolest cellist I’ve met. I hope I will be able to improve in playing the cello and make you proud. ❤️, Liam Dear Teacher Oleg, you are an exceptional cello teacher to Liam. I am grateful to have you teach and guide Liam. 🙏 Dear Ms Janice, thank you so much for building up the LVL family. You are always most wonderful to your teachers and students. We are thankful for the nurturing and loving environment that my children can learn and grow in. Liam is absolutely enjoying his musical journey and has been committed to his cello because of the encouragement from all of you. Looking forward to have Kate join in this family soon. We are blessed 🙏 Dear Aunty Patsy, you have been most patient and helpful to us. It was your warmth and patience in speaking with us the first time we met that left us a positive impression of LVL and that’s when we decided this was the right music school for us! Am very thankful for you. 🤗
