I thought music lessons would be a great stress relief for me after work, but I have a pretty busy schedule. Do you think I will be able to make this work?
Yes! One of the biggest reasons adult students reach out for lessons is the stress relief it provides from their every day life. We completely understand that you are very busy and we really want to help you reach your goals. We have a number of different lesson options throughout the week, so it’s very likely that we will be able to find a lesson time that works for you. Not only that, we have programs available that do not require you to practice a lot at home and solves the pressure of not having enough time to practice between lessons.
I am looking to add music to my child’s life to help them build confidence and be more creative. How old do students have to be to start music lessons at your school?
In general, we find the best age to start music lessons to be around 6-7 years old. We usually recommend starting with piano since it is the easiest to get started with. Voice and guitar we usually recommend starting around the age of 8. We do understand that every child is different and is why we offer a discounted introductory lesson to new students. This way you can meet with a teacher, take a lesson and see if now is the best time to get started with your child’s musical journey.
I have no musical talent or skill and neither does anyone in my family. Do you think I will be able to learn how to play an instrument or sing?
Yes, 100%. We find that students who commit to learning their instrument over a long period of time always become successful with their instruments. I once had no musical talent or skill, but after a lot of hard work, I went on to record 3 albums and perform in front of 10,000 people. While those might not be your goals, it goes to show you that nothing beats persistence and hard work.
How long will it take me to learn my instrument?
This varies on how often you come to lessons each week and how much time you actually practice with your instrument. I’ll be very honest. Learning an instrument is much like learning a new language. It is not something you can pick up in only 3 months and there is no quick fix solution to learning to play or sing. Again, it comes down to dedication and persistence and reaching for the right goals to keep you motivated through the rough patches (and trust me, there will be many). We promise that if you put your trust in us, and make a commitment to reaching your goals, we will help you get there, one lesson at a time. The rewards are always worth it.

I have always wanted to learn to play music or sing. Am I too old to start?
Never! We have helped students in their 80s start to learn a new instrument. Learning an instrument as an adult has many benefits to healthy brain function and can even help with preventing hearing loss! Honestly, if your passion is to learn music, we want to help you no matter how old you are.
