Frequently Asked Questions
Each child is completely different and therefore it is hard to put a specific age on when a student might be ready to start individual lessons. However, there are some indicators that your child might be ready for this experience:
- They can follow simple directions
- They can attend to an activity for approximately 30 minutes
- They would be comfortable working with another adult
The best way to find out if you child is ready is to schedule an initial consultation with us! During this visit, your child can meet his or her teacher and do a sample lesson.
We typically recommend that kids start with a 30 minute lesson, one time per week. As the teacher gets to know your child, he or she may eventually recommend more time.
For teen and adult learners, we typically recommend a 45-60 minute lesson.
If it’s your very first lesson, then usually the only thing you should bring is yourself and your instrument. Your teacher will take care of preparing any materials you might need on you or your child’s first day.
After your first lesson, your teacher might recommend that you purchase some books or other materials like a notebook or binder. It is important that you remember to bring any music/materials assigned by your teacher to your lesson each week.
The amount of time spent practicing really depends on the age and ability level of the student. Older students who may be more advanced on their instrument can expect to practice much longer than a younger student who may just be starting out.
Overall, we recommend that practice be consistent and supported at home whenever possible.
