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.
