    Frequently asked questions

    The Music Loft offers a free trial for every student.  This helps us evaluate the following:

    1. If the student is young, is he/she ready to learn?

    2. Is the teacher a good match for the student?

    3. What kind of learning style does the musician work best with?  Relaxed, structured, formal?

    4. What are the goals of the individual?  

    The Music Loft offers programs for all ages and abilities.  The Music Loft brings you the finest in both classical, popular and sacred music studies. Our high impact programs are designed to suit a variety of skill levels and interests. Whether you've  been playing an instrument for years or are just getting started, we can help you meet your goals. 

    A complete 8-week semester is $360, and if beginning mid-semester, tuition will be prorated based on when you start. We require automatic billing to a credit/debit card, with payments set up monthly in the amount of $180. There is a one-time registration fee of $25.00 per family.

    Discounts: We offer a $25 family discount (per semester) for families with multiple students taking lessons. 

    The qualifications of the teacher and the willingness of the student are the essential elements in this equation. Be sure to take an Trial Lesson with the teacher you are considering before commiting to study with that person. This will give you an idea if that teacher and his/her style of teaching are right for you. 

    Our purpose in teaching is the success of our students. We want you to reach your full personal and musical potential. 

    Here are some frequently asked questions:

    How long will it take me to learn to play?  This is a difficult question to answer - consider this: 1) Like any new skill, students will progress on their instruments according to the amount of time they are able to spend practicing; 2) Anyone can make significant progress quickly with the help of an inspiring instructor.

    Can adults learn to play an instrument?  ABSOLUTELY! With the help of trained educators, patience, and practice, playing an instrument is not only attainable but with it, comes the reward of personal achievement and satisfaction. There are several benefits for adults learning to play an instrument. Playing an instrument relieves stress, stimulates memory, and possibly helps with specific joint ailments. Learning musical skills and techniques requires using mental faculties very specifically to enhance and stimulate mind and motor capabilities.  

    What are the benefits of private lessons?  Private instruction is the best way for anyone to learn to play an instrument. The focus is on the student's education, growth, and development not only as a musician, but as an individual as well. The Music Loft faculty crafts individual lessons around the learning style of each student in order to guide you in becoming a well-rounded, confident musician.
