Music Lesson FAQ


When can I register for music lessons?

You can register year round for music lessons at our Charlotte school location.

Do I need a piano to start lessons?

It is ideal if you have a piano at home, but you can start lessons by using an electric keyboard for practice. Most of our students rent or buy small electric keyboards to practice on at home. We recommend a keyboard that has regular sized keys and a touch sensitive response. A touch sensitive keyboard means if you press a key harder it will play louder and if you press a key softer it will play quieter.

How long does it take to learn an instrument?

There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn an instrument. With regular practice a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving, and they find the lessons enjoyable.

Why bother with preschool music lessons?

Young children with developed rhythm skills perform better academically in early school years. Findings of a recent study showed that there was a significant difference in the academic achievement levels of students classified according to rhythmic competency. Students who were achieving at academic expectation scored high on all rhythmic tasks, while many of those who scored lower on the rhythmic test achieved below academic expectation.

Why do I have to pay the full month's tuition when my child only receives two classes in December?

Remember that the monthly payment is not related to the number of classes in the month. The number of classes that occur in any given month depends on the calendar and any holidays that may take place during that month. Each month is different, depending on the day of the week that your child comes to class. Some months will have 3 lessons and some months will have 5. When you enroll a child, you are enrolling him/her for a season of music classes. Over the course of a year, the annual fee is divided into 12 equal payments – one payment for each month. No matter which day of the week your child attends, he/she will receive at least 48 lessons over the course of a year.

I do not know anything about music, how can I help my child practice?

Even if you don’t have a musical background you can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child practice. By simply monitoring your child’s practice time, he or she will make progress. Many parents occasionally sit in on their child’s music lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should sound or how the student should be positioning their hands.
