Private lessons are a great way for a child to get started in their musical journey. Here at United Conservatory we often have kids as young as 4 start in piano, guitar, voice, and many other instruments. With private instruction you or your child will receive individualize attention, a special curriculum designed just for you in mind, and a teacher that knows your personality and your goals and will help you to reach them.
Group lessons can be quite fun! In our school we have hour long classes held in the weekends for our group programs. It is a fun experience where kids get a chance to interact with each other and learn from their peers. It is certainly a valid method of learning the instrument, if you are a beginner, in an engaging way. While it won’t have the individualized attention of a private class, it is a great approach to learning.
For our serious students who take hour long classes we recommend that you take part in our chamber music program. It is a great way to learn and showcase your skills, and play with people your age and grow in your musical skills.
Both of these methods are valid, and proven methods of learning an instrument and we encourage parents to try all the various methods!
