The Doctor Note Academy of Music believes that private instruction is the best way for anyone to learn how to play an instrument. The one-on-one instruction means that students are given instruction that best suits how they as an individual learn.

Also with private lessons a teacher can focus 100% of their attention on that one student to ensure that things such as hand positioning, posture or understanding of a particular concept are correct. If a student has a particular difficulty in one area, the teacher can work on it without hampering the progress of a class of students and alternatively if a student is excelling in one area, the teacher can move on.

When signing-up for private lessons you select a day and 30, 45 or 60 minute time slot which you will attend on a regular weekly basis. Learning to play an instrument well requires an investment of time. It is fun and intrinsically rewarding, but requires practice and patience.
