Where do I start with Music Lessons?
Music lessons is one of these very worthwhile ventures. The benefits of a musical education are wide reaching and unmistakable but where do you start? Here is a guide to getting started by focusing on the top three most important characteristics of that experience - 1 - Safety - when talking about our children specifically you want to make sure the person is fully background checked. This is why going to a professional music service is the only way to go. 2- Convenience - Unless you are a person with unlimited time and money to spend convenience is VERY high on the list. When considering price really think about what you are getting for it. Having a professional music instructor come right to your home so you can save time and money by being productive in your own home while the lesson in taking place is priceless. No more dragging the entire family out somewhere through traffic at $4 a gallon of gas, sitting in traffic, potentially missing your lesson if you're late and then waiting in that overcrowded waiting room trying to keep one or two or three other children interested while one partakes in a sub-standard musical experience just to turn around and fight traffic, etc. all the way back home. Total time lost anywhere from one to two hours at least not to mention that music lesson just tripled in price when you take into account your time, gas, etc. 3 - Professionalism - From the instructor that is sent to the office handling payment, scheduling, materials, etc. - you want a service that sends you an actual musical educator trained in the pedagogy of musical training - not "Joe who plays in a band..."..... Get started today on that musical journey for either your children or yourself or BOTH! You know, it's never too late until it's....well....too late (if you know what I mean) to start something new and challenge yourself. Happy Practicing! The Music Momma
