Violin and  Piano  Lessons

Gwyneth Thomson is based in Hamilton Ontario, and teaches Violin and Piano lessons both In-Studio and In-Home. With fifteen years of teaching experience, Gwyneth believes in quality of education, connection with her students, and in building a lasting love of music. All students are unique in age, aptitude, musicality and dedication. With time and effort, any student can find enjoyment and confidence through music making. It is my personal challenge to make music accessible and gratifying for all students. 

Gwyn has experience teaching violinists and pianists of all ages, from the beginning levels to advanced, serious students. She can prepare students for anything, including:

  • Royal Conservatory of Music examinations (Violin: all grades and ARCT / Piano: Beginner)

  • Music festivals

  • School programs

  • Recitals/other performances

  • Auditions for Youth Orchestras

  • Auditions for post-secondary music programs

Please contact me to set up an interview to go over time slots and pricing information, prices vary depending on location, lesson length and preference for In-home vs In-studio.

COVID 19 UPDATE: Currently all piano and violin lessons are either In-person or online at the student's preference. Studio fees apply to regular lessons, and there are travel fees for students taking in-home lessons. For more information, please contact me via email or phone.


"Gwyn is an amazing teacher and my daughter is so lucky to have her instruction. Her experience, teaching style, warmth and intuitive insight into my daughter's musical personality have allowed her to explore interesting pieces and really connect to the music and what she is learning. We also love Gwyn's flexibility in scheduling, the convenience of at-home lessons plus all the other well planned things like master classes and recitals."

my technique and playing have really improved with her help. Thank you Gwyn for making violin such a pleasure to play!"

"Gwyn has been the perfect match for my daughters. She is very intuitive and knows exactly how to encourage and motivate each student. Gwyn is the sweetest teacher my daughters have ever had and her passion for music has taught my daughters to love playing the piano again. The convenience of having Gwyn come and teach at our home has been incredible.  We have been so lucky to have found such an exceptional piano teacher."
