The Benefits of Private Music Lessons

There have been numerous studies showing that playing a musical instrument has significant positive effects on the brain. These studies indicate that no matter what your age, playing an instrument makes you smarter, happier and more productive.

Personalized training

Everyone learns in their own unique way, and at their own pace. Our private guitar lessons, piano lessons, ukulele lessons and mandolin lessons provide instruction that meets the specific learning style of each student.

Many students study an instrument in a school music program. In a school band or orchestra class, the instructor is trying to work with multiple students at the same time. In this type of a setting, it is simply not possible for the teacher to tailor instruction for each student.

Private music lessons are all about finding ways to help you or your child learn in the way that works best. Additionally, private instruction provides the disciplines required to excel in many of life's activities, not just the instrument that they are studying.


With a private instructor, learning the fundamentals of playing an instrument occurs much more quickly.

Students build confidence and determination, not to mention the desire to continue playing. The end result is more fun, and lessons that will be used for their entire life!

Instant Feedback

Private music lessons allow the instructor to provide corrections and advice, as well as praise and encouragement, instantly and constantly.

Effective Practice

Every young musician needs to learn how to practice. A student can spend hours each week practicing, and that time needs to be well spent.

A good private instructor will teach proper practice skills so the student gets the most out of their practice time. Additionally, the student won't dread practicing, because they will have control over it and can expect results.

Less Frustration, More Motivation

If a student is having trouble or feeling frustrated, the one-on-one attention he or she receives at a private music lesson will more likely result in a solution. Students who have been performing for more than a few years find it a lot easier to stay focused with the help of a private instructor.

In summary everyone, no matter what their aspirations can benefit from private music lessons. A private instructor can make learning and mastering an instrument fun, increase the likelihood of success and satisfaction for you and/or your child.
