Hello and welcome to the Classical Temple! We offer professional violin (beginners - professional) and piano (beginners - intermediate) tuition to children, teens and all ages aspiring musicians in and around Melbourne’s inner-west. The school follows a structured, progressive approach aimed at developing the technical and artistic foundations of beginner and intermediate students, and nurturing those with more advanced skills. We especially aim to inspire curiosity, love and appreciation of beautiful music in a fun and motivating home studio environment. Repertoire follows AMEB guidelines to show the different stages of progress, and to prepare students for AMEB grade examinations. Notation reading is covered from the very start and different elements of music theory are introduced gradually with the possiblity to expand on theory knowledge and sit for theory exams.

The Classical Temple is founded by Vessela Evrova-Wassenaar, a violinist, performer and passionate music teacher and graduate from the Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (UniMelb) having previously trained at the Sydney Conservatorium, Bulgarian National School of Music and in Belgium. Her relationship with the violin spans over decades (about four!), and she is also a qualified legal adviser (international and European law) and former journalist trainee.
