When Should My Child Begin Music Lessons?
The following guidelines will help you to have a successful, rewarding experience learning an instrument. These are practical tips that we have discovered from years of teaching and our experiences with teaching hundreds of students each year.
“My daughter tried cello lessons here. I was very happy. They answer the phone and they are polite and easy to deal with. My daughter is different, so finding the right teacher for her has been challenging.”
“Front desk staff is wonderful!!! Teachers are awesome!! One of my children’s favorite extracurricular activities. Thank you!!!”
“Great place! Our 12 year old looks forward to his lesson every week. As a parent, I especially appreciate the terrific organization and communication. Such is rare and invaluable with kids’ extracurricular activities and particularly music instructors or centers.”
“My 11 year old son wanted to play saxophone in the band in middle school and started taking lessons at Brill last summer. He absolutely loves his instructor and is excelling in band. He is excited about mastering the instrument and continues to take lessons.”
“I would like to tell you how impressed I am w/Brill. It’s run very professionally and the teachers are great. I have learned so much studying w/Mark. He sure knows his music and he is very professional. So, all in all, Brill should get an A+. I recommend it highly. Thanks again.”
“We are so pleased with the progress our daughter has made since joining the Brill Music Academy earlier this year. Our daughter looks forward to her lesson each week and has formed a strong bond with her teacher, Ms Debbie. We are so thankful we found Brill Music and couldn’t be happier!”
“The Brill Music Academy is a relaxed place where anyone can learn music. They listen to the reasons you are there and want to help you achieve your goals. My daughter was frustrated trying to learn at another music school in town.”
“Kasey has passed his passion and love for music onto my son. I cannot believe I don’t have to ‘tell him’ to practice. 🙂 He is always energized about what he has learned after a guitar lesson!”
“Just wanted you to know we enjoyed Sarah’s first recital very much. It was great hearing other students as well. Thanks for the great job organizing. I am happy Sarah is enjoying music. Pam has been a great teacher as well. See you soon!”
“The Brill Music Academy has some of the most experienced music teachers in Las Vegas. When my children first started playing music, they went through teachers at a couple of different schools.”
“I am so pleased with the instruction my son is receiving from Bernard. He is so patient with him. He tailors the lesson for his age and communicates his progress with me after each lesson. I am so glad we are sending him to Brill Music.”
“My children want to take lessons at the school where all of their friends go.”
“The teachers are the best! They really care about what my child is learning.”
“I would like you to know that we are upset that we have to withdraw because we are moving out of state. We love Brill Music! We think this place is ran perfectly!!”
“I love the personal treatment we receive here. I have never felt like my son is treated as just another student. Fred and the instructors we have worked with are all very friendly and patient. We have been to a couple other music schools and this one is the best!”
How Young is too Young? – Starting Music at the Right Age
Adults can start any instrument at any time. Their success is based on how willing they are to commit to practicing. We have taught many beginner students in their 60’s and 70’s.
One family can take multiple instruments on the same day and not have to travel to different locations to get the lessons that we offer in one place. This saves you time and money.
For children, starting at the right age is a key element in the success of their lessons. Some people will tell you “the sooner the better” but this attitude can actually backfire and be negative.
If a child begins lessons too soon, he or she may feel overwhelmed and frustrated and want to stop lessons. We don’t want to discourage a child just because of one unpleasant experience that could have been prevented. Sometimes if the child waits a year to start lessons, progress can be much faster. Children who are older than the suggested earliest starting age usually do very well.
