Whether they teach privately or at a school, teachers face problems with low-quality instruments that are hard to tune, difficult to get nice sound from, or just plain ugly. At Sixth Generation Violin, we believe that teachers should be able to focus on imparting their musical knowledge to students; and students should enjoy learning! That’s why we have a commitment to provide the highest quality instruments, rentals, setups and service available.


We are excited to offer lessons from our comfortable lesson room! Whether you want to learn violin or viola, guitar, mandolin or cello, there is an excellent teacher for you on our list below. Private lessons are arranged directly with them and may be held in the Saratoga Sound Center lesson room or in another convenient location.


Teachers and luthiers have a symbiotic relationship. Teachers need luthiers to provide excellent service and quality instruments. However, luthiers need teachers too! Teachers play a huge role in advising their students and guiding them to instruments that can help them find their voice. We are happy to offer lesson space for private lessons, and special deals for teachers to thank you when you guide your students to find their perfect instrument or rental at Sixth Generation Strings.
