Book an Appointment
Whether you’re a school teacher with a large string program or a private violin, viola, cello or double bass teacher with only a handful of students, we are here to help.
We do this by:
+ Supporting AUSTA NSW
+ Sending out an informative mail-out to string instrument teachers on our list
+ Running teacher workshops and reading days
+ Advertising private violin, viola, cello and double bass teachers on our website for students looking for a new teacher
+ Offering teacher discounts on sheet music, accessories, cases and giftware
We also have one of the largest ranges of string sheet music in Australia and knowledgeable staff who can make useful recommendations for method books, technique books, textbooks or string orchestra titles to keep your students engaged. We are more than happy to special order anything else that you might be looking for; if it’s available in print, we’ll get it in for you.
Workshops and Open Days
At the Sydney String Centre we aim to run at least two string instrument teacher development workshops per year; presenters include nationally and internationally recognised pedagogues. These are always very informative events, and a great opportunity to meet other teachers and compare notes of what works. We also run extra Open Days at the beginning of the school year for string instrument teachers only. This is an opportunity for teachers to browse for new music, new instruments and accessories to get prepared for the New Year. It is also a lovely time of fellowship with other teachers.
Teacher Mailing List
Join our teacher mailing list to receive notices for sales, workshops, AUSTA events, relevant concerts and any other exciting news we may have to share.
We offer Australian string teachers a discount on sheet music, accessories, cases and giftware. To be approved, a teacher registration number, AUSTA number or ABN must be supplied.
Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Base Teacher Database
We have a useful ‘find a teacher’ database on our website as a resource for our customers. We are asked regularly in store and over the phone to recommend string instrument teachers and we find this is the easiest and fairest way for us to do this.
