Frequently Asked Questions
How long of a lesson should I take?
For kids 5 to 9 years old, a 30 minute lesson is a good duration for the lesson. For 9 and up and students who have specific music goals such as playing in orchestra at school, a 45 minute lesson is a much better investment. For advanced players an hour lesson is recommended.
What happens if I ( my child ) gets sick and can’t make a lesson one day?
We have group make up classes on the weekend, that are age and level appropriate. You can sign up online for as many as you would like and the make up never expires, meaning you can take the make up class a week or 2 months later.
What happens if I leave for 2 months and come back?
If you are leaving for 30 days or longer, you have the option of holding your time and teacher for when you return by paying your normal monthly tuition.You may also withdraw completely and re- register when you return, however your time and teacher may not be available.
Should I buy the instrument before starting lessons?
You will definitely want to purchase or rent an instrument for your child to have at home. WE rent 3/4/scale guitars and violins for $20 per month. For piano and drumsets, we can help you with the right decision for a good home instrument within your budget. You don’t necessarily need to spend a lot on an acoustic piano to get started. You can purchase a decent electronic keyboard that work fine for your child’s first year. For drums , electronic sets are great as they allow the student to practice at home without shaking the house down! With both keyboards and drums, headphones can be used by the student at home.
How do I know my child is progressing ?
To keep our students learning and progressing, we use the Musical Ladder system. Every 3 months our students take a test with their teacher to make sure they are absorbing the material in the lessons and making progress. Our students love this system as they get to earn cool colorful wristbands and certificates as well as trophies for their achievements! Our teachers also will take the time to conference
