Frequently Asked Questions

Music Lesson FAQ's

How long does it take to learn how to play?
It depends on your commitment. Like sports, dance and other skills, regular lessons and quality practice time is the key.

At what age can my child start lessons?
This depends on their maturity. Typically, piano, violin, drums, and guitar can be started as early as age 7, voice at 8, and wind instruments at age 10. We offer one free trial lesson per year for students 7 or younger to see if the time is right.

Is it too late to learn music as an adult?
Not at all. We have a number of adult students who are picking up an instrument for the first time, or returning to something they played years ago.

What's the lesson cancellation policy?
We adhere to a strict 24 hour cancellation policy.  Lessons cancelled with 24 hrs notice may be rescheduled.  Since our teachers are booked far in advance, we have a designated “Make up Week” at the end of the semester.  No shows, or cancellations made with less than 24 hrs will be charged the full lesson fee.   

​What if I get sick the morning of my lesson?
We understand that sometimes things happen that are out of a student's control.  However, in order to attract and keep great teachers, it's important to respect their time and maintain a strict cancellation policy.  We require 24 hours notice to reschedule your lesson, even for illness or any other circumstances.

What happens on Snow Days?
School closings do not necessarily mean we are closed too. You will receive notification via text, or email if we will be closed by noon on weekdays, and by Fridays at 10p for Saturday morning lessons.  The lesson will either be rescheduled for Makeup Week, or, if not possible, refunded.  Like you, we rely on local weather reports when making inclement weather decisions and the safety of our students and teachers is a priority.  We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in minimizing the impact a bad winter can have.  

Do you provide instruments for lessons?
Pianos, drums, and amplifiers are provided. For other instruments, students should bring the instrument they intend to use at home. Rental instruments are also available at our retail store.

Are lesson books included in the fees?
Instruction material varies by teacher and student, and is not included in lesson fees. Students receive 10% off all books, and accessories.

Will any of your teachers travel to my home to give lessons?
No, all our lessons take place at our Studios where teachers have access to method books, stereos, repair tools, and other instruments and equipment.
