It's been 20 years since Asheville Music School first opened its doors! Time flies when you're making music! Thanks to everyone who has been a part of AMS over the years. We couldn't have done it without the support of this amazing community!

Violin & Viola Lessons

At the Asheville Music School we offer violin and viola lessons in a variety of styles. And yes, the violin and the fiddle are the same instrument (sometimes fiddlers like to have a flatter bridge, but that’s just a personal preference). The only difference is the style of playing.

Our violin teachers can instruct you how to play the violin like a violin or a fiddle. Pick classical style, Suzuki method, jazz, or just about any kind of folk style (Old Time, Bluegrass, Scotch-Irish, Swing, Blues/Rags, Klezmer or Cajun) and we have a teacher for you.
