TEACHING THE VIOLIN

The best age to start learning the violin is between three and six,” said Margaret Porter, a violinist and music teacher. “lt’s the time when you are learning about the world,” Margaret, who lives in London, prefers to take pupils at three and four, although she has made lots of exceptions for keen five-year-old. When she started teaching the violin in 1972, her first class consisted of her children’s five-year-olds school friends.

Margaret's pupils have group lessons. Each group has about a dozen pupils and each lesson lasts an hour, once a fortnight. In addition, each pupil has one individual lesson a week with her. Parents also have to attend the lessons. It is important that the parents take an active interest in the lesson.

From the earliest lessons, pupils learn to play by ear. They do not even try to read music until they have been playing for several years, and for a long time, there is a big difference between their playing and reading music. Margaret says that her method is not supposed to produce great violinists, and always suggests that pupils who perform particularly well should leave and study the violin using more traditional methods.

What opinion does Margaret have about her best pupils?

  • They ought to find another teacher.
  • They will become great violinists using her method.
  • They could try harder.
  • They take several years to learn to read music.

Who were Margaret’s first pupils?

  • her children
  • three and four-year-olds
