Why Take Private Lessons?
Many parents wonder if private lessons are truly necessary if their child already participates in orchestra at school. But the unfortunate reality is that it is simply not possible for a school orchestra teacher to devote focused attention to each student. This is the role of a separate private lessons instructor, who is able to work with a student on his or her specific needs, week after week. A private lessons instructor focuses on technical and expressive deficiencies, striving to correct any posture problems or bad playing habits, and carefully monitors his or her student’s weekly progress.
It is not an overstatement to say that a student taking private lessons improves more in one month than he or she would over the course of an entire year without them. Furthermore, lessons improve the likelihood that a child will enjoy playing, devote more time to practice, and rise through the ranks of his or her school ensembles. Unlike many extracurricular activities, including sports, playing music is a gift that can be enjoyed forever — so entrust your budding musician to a private teacher who will foster his or her talents and instill a lifelong love of music!
And lest we forget: one is never too old begin lessons! Adults of all ages and skill levels benefit from individual study. It’s a terrific outlet for self-expression, to ease the stresses of daily life, and to entertain oneself, family, and friends. Find a teacher whom you’re comfortable with and who can make lessons fun!
