The Benefits of Private Music Lessons
Every child learns in his or her own way, at their own pace. Private music lessons can provide instruction that meets the specific learning style of each child.
In Orchestra class, the teacher is trying to bring 30-60 students along, and can’t possibly tailor instruction for each student—and if your student can’t keep pace, they’ll only fall further and further behind.
One-on-one music lessons are all about finding ways to help your student learn in the way that works best for them.
With a private instructor, a student learns much more quickly the fundamentals of playing. A solid foundation is established, and the student can keep learning, playing and succeeding—and that’s fun!
The student builds confidence and determination, not to mention the desire to continue playing.
When a student isn’t doing something correctly, it’s not likely to be detected and addressed in Orchestra class. There’s just too much going on for the teacher to focus on each student’s performance.
With private music lessons, corrections and advice—as well as praise and encouragement—are delivered instantly and constantly.
Every young musician needs to learn how to practice. A student spends hours each week practicing, and that time needs to be well spent.
A good private instructor will send the student home weekly with the proper practice skills so the student gets the most out of practice time. Just as important, the student won’t dread practice time, because he’ll 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 they receive in a private music lesson will more likely result in a solution, and 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.
Once past the beginner stages, a music student may not know where to go next. A private instructor can help the student discover what new music to explore and what goals to pursue. Sometimes all a student needs is someone to report to on a regular basis, so they know that they are accountable.
Private lessons will help a student achieve greater success and prepare them for more difficult piece
