Hi, I’m Karla!
Welcome to my shiny website – Karla Norton Violin Lessons! Here you can find out about the music lessons I offer in the windy city of Wellington and the sun-soaked township of Blenheim, catch up on my upcoming performances and watch videos of me playing!
A bit about me…
I’m a freelance professional violinist living in Wellington and working accross New Zealand. In 2016, I returned from the UK where I’d been playing with some amazing orchestras including, Southbank Sinfonia, Orchestra of the Royal Opera House Covent Garden and the BBC Concert Orchestra to name a few! Since then, I’ve been galavanting up and down NZ playing with Orchestra Wellington, Royal New Zealand Ballet, New Zealand Opera, Dunedin Symphony Orchestra, Festival Opera and many other ensembles! I’ve also been teaching private violin lessons to people of all ages in the UK and New Zealand since 2005, and I’m here to give you the fun-filled, positive teaching experience you deserve. You can find out a bit more about me here or send me a message here!
Why private violin lessons?
Whether you’re looking for a serious commitment to music or simply want to learn something new and have fun while doing it, there’s nothing more important than being taught by an experienced violin teacher. I set up the Karla Norton Violin studio to provide top quality private violin tuition, music theory lessons and chamber music coaching in Wellington and Blenheim. Each individual student learns in a different way. One on one lessons with my students help me to focus on their needs as a student rather than the general need of a group lesson. Whether you are starting out as a beginner learning to read music for the first time or whether you are an advanced virtuoso looking for the next level of technical and musical development, this personalised approach to teaching helps with fast improvement and with making the process of learning rewarding and enjoyable!
