Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect at my first lesson?
At your first lesson you will get an introduction to your new teacher and instrument. They will ask you a lot of questions about your goals and what you would like to learn from lessons. It helps if you know exactly what you are trying to achieve. For example are you learning for fun or to pursue a professional career.
Most teachers know that your first lesson can be scary and will try to make it as fun and comfortable as possible. You will begin making music at your very first lesson and then given tools to go home and practice.
Do I need to bring anything to my lesson?
Teachers will usually provide you with the materials you need such as books or sheet music. You may be asked to reimburse them for the expense but you won’t need to go find learning materials on your own for the first lesson. You may want to bring a small notebook to write down assignments or useful notes, a binder to carry music in, a pencil, and water.
Do I have the wrong teacher for me?
Santa Clarita is home to many excellent teachers but for every great teacher there is another bad one. Green Room Music Studios carefully screens each teacher before allowing them to teach piano lessons. We look at education, experience, personality as well as a background check. However, even a great teacher may not be right for every student. Here are a few signs that you should consider finding a new teacher.
- They haven’t passed a background check
- They don’t seem to care about you or ask how you are doing
- If you have not learned several songs within 3 months
- If they are not teaching theory, scales, and technique during lessons
- They do not provide chances to perform or recitals
- If you leave your lessons confused or lost
