Mike B. says, "Sas is an accomplished guitarist and experienced instructor. He is supportive and encouraging to the student. In so doing, he renews the student’s enthusiasm with each lesson. He tries to identify the student’s problem areas each week and then focuses on those trouble spots to help the student overcome them. I am a “mature” student (70+ y.o.) but know he has experience and success with very young students as well. I can recommend “Mr. Sas” whole heartedly." Read more

Jason A. says, "I took Dr. Shipman's Aural Comprehension course in college, and to this day it is the most valuable (and my favorite) course that I've ever taken as a musician. Training our ears is critical to musical development, and her methods of training the ear to identify single or multiple intervals, as well as chords and chord progressions were vital in my growth as a musician, and to this day help me with similar skills such as transposing and even sight-singing. I wouldn't be the musician I am today without her guidance!" Read more

As a teacher, I find so many former players stopped because their teachers didn't listen to their students musical goals, often in genres other than classical. As a performer, my personal goal has been to maximize my instrument. I want to be a true master of my craft, and I often say I want to "make flute fit in all the music it doesn't belong in". I believe my years of experience performing in so many different genres coupled with my classically trained background give me a unique perspective that students can appreciate. I am able to draw on my skills in all genres and my education in classical to craft lessons for students that keep them ...

Your Music Lessons questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do music lessons cost?

Music lessons cost $40 to $90 per hour. Most teachers offer weekly lessons in order to provide regular feedback, keep students motivated, and provide enough opportunities to learn new techniques and pieces of music. More frequent lessons do not provide enough time to practice and master skills between lessons.

To save money on music lessons consider group lessons, which are often cheaper than private lessons and allow you to learn from other students. Another option is to take online lessons which tend to be more affordable than in-person lessons and can be a great way to learn from a qualified teacher that isn't local. Finally, look for scholarships or grants to help pay for music lessons.

At what age can you start music lessons?

The best age to start music lessons depends on the individual and their interests. Most experts agree that children can start learning music as early as 3 or 4 years old when they can communicate and follow instructions. There is no age that is too late to take music lessons – even seniors can benefit from learning or improving their musical skills.

Studies have shown that children who are exposed to music at an early age have better language skills, memory, and problem-solving skills. Music lessons help improve fine motor skills like hand-eye coordination and finger dexterity which are important for other activities like writing and drawing. Learning to play an instrument can also build a child's self-confidence and help to develop a child's creativity.

How long does it take to learn an instrument?

The amount of time it takes to learn an instrument depends on the instrument, the student's age, and the amount of time they practice. In general, it takes several months to a year to learn the basics of most instruments including how to read music and play basic scales and chords. With regular practice, students can expect to play simple songs within a few months.

Piano, guitar, and percussion instruments are some of the easier instruments to learn. Strings and horn instruments take a bit longer to learn. Becoming proficient at any instrument takes several years of lessons and regular practice.

Do I need an instrument at home to take music lessons?

No, you do not need an instrument at home to take music lessons, but it does make it easier to practice and improve your skills. Without an instrument at home, you will need to find an instrument to practice between lessons if you hope to improve.

Before investing in any musical instrument, you will want to talk with the music teacher to find the instrument that is right for you. Guitars are a popular instrument for beginners since they are relatively inexpensive to buy. The flute is another simple instrument to learn and is a good choice for students who want to learn to play an instrument quickly. Pianos are a more costly instrument but are a popular choice for families since everyone can enjoy playing the same instrument.

How do online music lessons work?

Online music lessons are similar to in-person lessons, only the teacher and student are not in the same physical location. Using video conferencing platforms such as Skype or Zoom, the teacher and students can communicate with each other from the privacy of their homes.

In order to take advantage of the affordable online lessons, you need a computer and internet connection with good audio and video quality to avoid frustration. The teacher and student join the video call and the lesson proceeds in the same way they would for an in-person lesson. Online music lessons require more focus and patience and are not suggested for very young students.

What questions should I ask a music teacher?

Here are some important questions you should ask a music teacher before you start taking lessons:

  • What is your teaching style?
  • What is your experience teaching music?
  • What are your rates?
  • How long are your lessons?
  • What is your availability?
  • What are your expectations for students?
  • Can you provide references from your current and past students?

How do I choose a music teacher?

Choosing a qualified music teacher is important for those wanting to learn or develop their musical skills. Find a teacher that fits your schedule, budget, and learning style by following these recommendations:

  • Look for a teacher with a degree in music or years of experience teaching your preferred instrument.
  • Make sure the teacher with a teaching style that suits you. For example, if you learn better with a more formal teacher that focuses on technique, don't choose a teacher that is more relaxed and focuses on creative, free-style playing.
  • Find a teacher that is affordable for your budget and has availability for lessons that fit your schedule.
  • Confirm that the teacher will help you reach your goals whether it is to learn a new instrument, read music, learn music theory, or just have fun.How do I choose a music teacher?

Sas provides very personalized music sessions. I take Ukulele with him and he is great in meeting me where I'm at, motivating me to work hard, and helping me understand what I'm doing. Could not recommend him enough!

Katherine is one of the most inspiring teachers I've ever had. 10 years later and I still reference her lessons. If you're looking for a boring lecture with no real life application, this is NOT your guide. Thanks for the musical lessons and the life lessons. There are some people that leave a mark on your heart. She is one of them.
