Or You can call, email us or submit your question on this page; then, we will tell you everything you need to know.

How much practice is required between lessons?

It depends on the age and level of the player. The most important thing is consistency. In general, for young beginners practicing fifteen minutes a day, five days a week is a great start. This will increase to thirty minutes a day after a year, and then up to forty-five minutes a day after a few years. Students wanting to pursue the higher grades of any Conservatory of Music program in the world will need to increase to an hour a day and more.

What happens if I register for online lessons but change my mind about the instrument?

We are very flexible. If you would like to try another instrument, we will switch you to any other instrument.

What is the age range of the students attending lessons?

We have students of all ages: children, teens, adults and seniors. Lessons are personalized according to each student’s needs and goals. In general, some students can begin private lessons at age 4. Some students can begin guitar, drums, setar and violin at age 5. Voice students can begin at age 7 for an introductory program, with more formal vocal training starting at age 8. We teach piano students starting at age 6, and brass and woodwind instruments such as flute, saxophone, and trumpet at age 9.

What is the instrument to start learning?

In general, the best instrument to start learning is the one that you are most passionate about! Music is meant to be enjoyed and provide an outlet for our creative passions. For young beginners, there are some additional considerations. The piano can be a great instrument to start on because the student doesn’t have to hold and balance the instrument (like cello or trombone) so they can focus on the music. Also, the piano doesn’t need to be tuned every time you play it, and the tune is not affected by the player’s technique, meaning that even beginners can get a good sound out of the instrument. However, passion is very important, and we have had beginners start successfully on every instrument.

How long will I need to take lessons?

The period of time that a student is enrolled in the program varies. The more a person wishes to learn the longer they will take lessons. The basic fundamentals can take about three months to learn on average, however; music is a science that can be studied for a lifetime.

Do I need to buy an instrument right away?

Students need an instrument at home to practice in between lessons; otherwise, their progress will be extremely slow. That being said, some music stores offer rental, rent-to-own to help new students get started before buying an instrument.

Do you have any discounts?

We offer a family discount for additional family members attending online lessons. We also offer a discount for students enrolled in more than one music program. For additional promotions and seasonal discounts, please follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

Do I need to learn to read music or can I just play by ear?

You can just play by ear, but you will severely limit yourself. In our experience, the best “by ear” players have a solid foundation of note reading. True musicianship includes both the ability to read music and play by ear. We recommend that all of our students learn to read music. Reading music opens up new worlds of possibility that remain closed to ear-only players. Reading music is much easier to learn than you think.

What happens if I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson?

You can do it easily on the student panel, or we will schedule a make-up lesson as long as we have been informed at least 48 hours in advance.

Can I make monthly payments?

Yes, you can make payments every month, or every three months or six months - with no long-term commitments. You can just get more discounts in the three months and six months' plan.
