Vov Dylan violin academy online


2020 and the Corona Virus has changed the nature of teaching music for the immediate future.


Nonetheless, the need for lessons continues and the Vov Dylan Violin Academy has adapted to the continually changing climate.


The online academy is operating for both current students and also as a short term aid for students from other teachers who might not be able to offer online options. 




Lessons are all held on a one-on-one basis. The only restriction on lesson availability is time.


Online Studio operation hours are currently Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 6.30am until 10pm Sydney Australia time.


Lessons are booked in 30 minute blocks. To allow for technical set up issues and a longer tuning process, each 30 minute lesson has an extra 10 minutes factored in as a bonus to ensure that there is 30 minutes of actual lesson time.




Lessons are currently available to operate with:

  • Zoom (preferred)
  • Skype
  • FaceTime

To ensure the lesson goes smoothly you need:

  • computer / iPad / tablet / etc set up separately to the music stand far enough back so that the teacher can see your whole upper half (so we can see bowing / fingering / posture)
  • Computer close to the modem
  • all devises charged at the time of the lesson
  • turn off all background vision and noise filters.


temporary teacher and student support


During this time, there are many teachers across the globe who either can't for have yet been able to transition to online lessons.


As a Violin Teacher proficient in multiple Exam Syllabi and expectations, I am able to act as a temporary teacher during this time - working in co-ordination with your main teacher until they are able to be online, or return to face-to-face lessons.


theory / music analysis / general knowledge preparation


All of the above skills still need developing during this time.


The Vov Dylan Violin Academy employs teachers to help with this.


Our courses are developed by Dr Steve Watson and supported with online teaching materials and are also conducted via Zoom and Skype.


These courses are designed to help gain the extra requirements of your practical exams that are beyond the technical element of playing your instrument.




Overall - your Violin Lessons and Exam / Performance preparation can continue during this period. If you have any queries please feel free to make contact at any time via : info@vovdylan.com
