Looking for a new violin teacher in Toronto. Help!

May 21, 2018, 1:48 PM · I am an ex-high school violinist who wants to get back into playing as a hobby.

I play at an advanced level (somewhere between RCM grade 7/8) and last studied in 2015.

Does anyone have suggestions on violinists taking adult students? I know of one who was recommended to me ages ago but his studio might be full. (Please - no 'music school' pitches)

My budget is $70-100/lesson weekly and I work out of Toronto.

My friend has been taking viola classes with her and is very happy.
If you are into period performance, some members of Tafelmusik provide private lessons - not sure if withing your price range... but possible.
