Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What age does my child or do I need to be to take lessons?
Any age that you are interested in starting is ok! In the Suzuki approach, we can start quite young, but with these automated courses, the parent will be instructing based on my automated teaching or watching along. I do recommend 6-9 or so for these courses. Younger than that will have more success with "real-time" lessons, please contact me if you are interested in this. Sign up for the 10 and up if interested in learning as an older beginner or adult.
2. How long will I need to take lessons?
The period of time that a student is enrolled in the program varies.
The more a person wishes to learn the longer they will take lessons.
The basic fundamentals can take about 3-6 months to learn on average,
however; music is a science that can be studied for a lifetime.
3. Will I need to purchase any additional materials?
Yes. You will need to rent or purchase an instrument to get started. I have scans and videos in some of the courses but recommend getting your own Suzuki book to write anything as needed. As you continue, a tuner, music stand and other things will be nice to get as well.
4. Do you teach music reading?
Yes. You will learn to read music and some music theory.
Remember music is a language, just like English,
except the musical alphabet, goes only from A to G.
5. I already know a little about my instrument, do I have to start at the beginning?
No. You are welcome to start wherever you'd like in the course and go at your own pace.
