HOW LONG OF A LESSON DO I NEED?
I know you want to choose the right lesson length for yourself or your child. But what you really want to do is make the most progress possible. And your lesson length has an effect on your progress. So we are going to look at lesson length in terms of maximizing your progress. It’s about getting the fastest results and feeling comfortable. There are 3 factors that you’ll need to consider to get the right lesson length. These are your goals, concentration, and your budget.
In order to choose the right lesson length, you should know what you want to accomplish. You should have a clear idea of what you want to learn. Generally speaking, the more ambitious your goal, the longer lesson you will require.
Part of a successful music lesson is learning to play music accurately. And that requires good concentration. If your concentration breaks, you won’t be able to play accurately.If you find yourself unable to concentrate for a 45 minute or 60 minute lesson, then you should consider taking a shorter lesson. Simply put, the longer you can concentrate, the longer a lesson you can benefit from.
You can only take a lesson that you can afford. Sometimes students are unable to afford a longer lesson length and have to take a shorter lesson. Don’t be discouraged! As long as you attend your weekly lessons and practice consistently, you’ll get exactly the things you need to make the most progress. And with that information, you’ll then go home to repeat what you’ve learned and form solid habits.
