Whether you’re a complete beginner or an experienced musician looking to take your playing to another level, private lessons provide the opportunity to get the personal attention that can be beneficial to your growth as a musician.
Private lessons are scheduled by appointment and are available Monday through Saturday. Investment: $45/hour, $30/half hour
Even for musicians who have studied music at school or completed group classes, here are 6 great reasons to consider private instruction for you or your child:
1. One on One Attention:
A private teacher is able to note areas of struggle and give individual-specific assistance.
2. Pursue individual interests:
In music class, the teacher must teach and plan according to the collective. Repertoire cannot possibly be selected based on everyone’s personal preference, so the music may or may not be a style everyone enjoys. With private lessons, a musician has a greater opportunity to pursue his or her own musical tastes. A student who enjoys his/her music will naturally be more motivated!
3. Instruction based on learning styles:
Every person learns in a different way. Some are aural, some are visual, some are hands-on, etc. A class setting cannot offer such individually tailored instruction to everyone…but the private lesson setting can. Private lessons help children and adults achieve the greatest amount of success in the least amount of time.
4. Provides a sense of identity:
Private lessons give people a sense of identity. It is a special time just for them where they can meet with their teacher and work together to improve their own skills and build confidence. A class setting cannot offer this to the same degree.
5. Not hampered by group ability:
If an individual is naturally gifted, nothing can be more frustrating than having to wait for everyone else in the class to catch up. Private lessons on the other hand move at the pace of the child/adult and can progress as slowly or quickly as need be.
6. Opportunity to perfect individual skills:
With the one-on-one attention a musician receives in the private lesson, he or she is able to focus on developing individual skills. Where in a classroom setting would this same kind of pinpoint attention be available to each person?
