The Music Room teaches private and group music lessons to students of all ages and abilities. Young beginners through senior citizens can enjoy professional music lessons to discover, learn, and play piano, guitar, percussion and voice.
Here are a few of our frequently asked questions, please let us know if we can answer any others that you may have!
Q: How old does my child need to be to begin lessons?
A: We typically start private music lessons at the age of 5 for piano, voice and percussion. We suggest a child be 7 years old for beginner guitar lessons due to finger strength when learning to hold down strings.
Q: Do I need a piano at home to take piano lessons?
A: It is ideal if you do have a piano at home, but you can start lessons without one. Most of our students rent or buy small electric keyboards to practice on at home.
Q: How long does it take to learn an instrument?
A: There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn an instrument. With regular practice a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons enjoyable. Just like anything, the more you practice, the better you become.
Q: I don’t have any musical background or ability; can I still help my child practice?
A: Yes. Even if you don’t have a musical background you can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child practice. Usually, by monitoring and reminding your child to practice their “homework,” they will progress.
Q: How much do you charge?
A: $95.00 a month for a 30 minute private lesson held once a week.
$150.00 a month for a 60 minute private lesson held once a week.
There is a one time registration fee of $25.00
Q: What if I miss a class?
A: We are usually able to offer make up classes if we have at least a 24 hour notice that you will be missing your music lesson. Make up classes will be determined by the teachers schedule and availability. We CANNOT offer makeup classes for “no show students.”
Q: Where are you located?
A: We are located at 8349 1st Ave Leeds, Al 35094. This address will bring you to a gray colored house. We are the two-story brick building directly behind the house. This is what our building looks like.
