Angelese P. says, "Dr. Park's vast wisdom and knowledge on cello and orchestral cello repertoire is an invaluable asset in his teaching. Not only is he an amazing technical teacher, Dr. Park's encyclopedic knowledge of music is not only impressive but is very rare to see in a young cello instructor. It is inspiring to say the least! He also shows that he cares about you outside the studio and is very personable and friendly. I greatly enjoyed my lessons with Yeil when I was at ASU. I would recommend him to anyone, no matter what age or level you are in your cello-learning journey!" Read more

Are music lessons for adults worth it?

Music lessons for adults are worth it for many reasons like:

  • Rekindling your love for music or starting a new hobby
  • Making faster progress to learn how to play an instrument
  • Preparing to play at a family gathering
  • Following your dream of becoming an amateur performer
  • Stimulating your creativity
  • Enhancing your brain functions
  • Boosting your confidence.

How often should I have adult music lessons?

Make steady progress by taking adult music lessons 1 to 2 times weekly, or you can have less frequent classes and go at a slower pace. If your goal is to play simple tunes within a few months, then you might book lessons only twice a month.

How long are music lessons for adults?

Most music lessons for adults are typically between 30 to 60 minutes long. However, you can have longer lessons that suit your progress level if you discuss it with the teacher before booking.

How many music lessons do I need?

Adults need as many music lessons as they want to meet their goals, and the number of classes varies greatly according to the different aims of each student. Progress faster by practicing often, memorizing the techniques shown in each class, and asking for assistance when needed.

  • Adults can play a song and understand sheet music within 3 months to 1 year.
  • After 2 to 5 years of consistent practice, you can gain confidence to play in public.
  • Performing professionals study for 10 to 20+ years.

How do I find the best music lessons for adults near me?

  • Choose a tutor who aligns with your learning style and objectives.
  • Always compare at least 3 instructors to see the average prices.

What questions do I ask when choosing an adult music teacher?

When reaching out to prospective teachers, consider asking:

  • How many years of teaching experience do you have?
  • What educational background or which degrees do you have in music?
  • Do you have experience teaching adults my age?
  • Is there an opportunity for a trial lesson, perhaps at a reduced rate?
  • What instrument type would you suggest for at-home practice?
  • What's the optimal amount of practice I should do between our sessions?
  • Can you recommend any specific music books, and what would they cost?
  • Will you assign tasks or pieces for me to work on at home?
  • Do you adapt your teaching style to cater to individual students?
  • Is there anything specific I should bring to the lessons?
  • How diverse is the repertoire of music that you can teach?
  • Could you share your rules and payment details in writing?
  • What is your policy for lesson cancellations?
  • Am I allowed to choose some favorite songs for us to work on?

Meeting with Susan is always such a pleasure, one of the highlights of my week. I feel myself expanding creatively and personally through the music and the artwork that I make under her guidance. No matter where I go I’ll carry with me the preciousness of the gift she’s given me—the finding of my voice, my muse, and my passion, and the coming together of all the corners of my creative influence.

Dr. Park is not only an incredible cellist but the best cello teacher you could hope for. He guides you to improve technically and musically, asking questions along the way so that his students have their own realizations and each form their own musical identity. His Socratic approach meant that I always left my lessons feeling inspired and even more fascinated about music than before.
