Practice

We ask that students commit to practice. It’s fun and the muscles need it to develop muscle memory. If the only time a student touches their instrument is during a lesson their muscles will have trouble remembering what they learned previously and the student won't make much progress. Consistent lessons, practice, and performance opportunities contribute to musical growth.

Registering
