Joshua Bell's favorite teaching method

Joshua Bell, the GRAMMY® Award-winning violinist, sets the standard for instruction at Trala. He’s actively shaping Trala’s curriculum and recording a series of behind-the-scenes videos while on tour to share advice and inspiration with Trala students. We’re a little star struck, but trying to play it cool.

It's never too late to make music

But you don't have to take our word for it...

As a nurse, my life can get stressful. Learning violin for the first time has allowed me to make a personal commitment to myself every day. It’s nice to not have all of my self-worth wrapped up in a job.”

- Kassandra, Trala violin student

I'm often asked by grown-ups if it is too late for them to take up violin lessons.  I have always said 'It's never too late!', but now I can tell them 'You gotta check out Trala!' I'm convinced now that the music education industry could be significantly strengthened if we served adults and people of all geographic backgrounds with the same resources we bring to schoolchildren.”
