Private Music Lessons for Piano, Voice, Guitar, Bass, Drums, and Art
The 8 Benefits of Taking Private Music Lessons at a Professional Music School:
1. Teacher Qualifications
Professional music schools, such a Forté Academy of the Arts, attract the finest teachers because a music school like ours cultivates a great learning and teaching environment. Overall, a professional music school is designed to provide students with an excellent music education. Teachers who are not associated with top-notch music schools due to their lack of experience or education, lack of facilities, lack of expertise and lack of success with their students are often those who are willing to drive to students' homes. It’s not always the case, but in general, a teacher willing to drive to your home, will not be as highly experienced and skilled than those in a professional music school.
2. Great Energy and Sense of Music Community
Students are often more motivated by observing other students’ learning in a professional music school environment. Peer pressure, in the best sense of the term, is in play when students participate in rehearsals and share their practicing experience. Our Group Make Up Classes are an excellent opportunity for our students to get to know each other and meet other teachers they normally do not see on a regular basis. When students play for each other in preparation for recitals and for class performances, there is a sense of purpose in being prepared for their class. Even just sitting and waiting for their lesson to begin, the students see and hear others coming and going and get caught up in the energy of the professional environment.
3. Professional Tools of the Trade
A professional music school provides students with an environment conducive to learning. With fine acoustic instruments, attentive teachers and well-equipped classrooms, students can truly focus on learning. There are no distractions at a music school; whereas at the student’s home the students are subjected to the phone ringing, the dog barking, the TV blaring in the background, not to mention other family members’ talking and interrupting. At home, the teacher might not have all the necessary resources with them to further enrich student’s learning experience and target his individual learning styles (such as a metronome, sheet music, learning aids, etc.). There is no white board, copy machine, foot rest, music stand, bench cushion, and, most importantly, often a less than desirable-quality instrument is in the home for beginners at first. For many students, their only opportunity to play on a fine grand piano or to sing on-stage is when they come to a school like Forté Academy of the Arts.
4. Performance Opportunities
Performances are important milestones for the developing student musician. Having access to a performing stage, lights, sound equipment, and fine instruments is necessary for students to have strong preparatory experiences. Rental of professional halls is expensive, and it requires liability insurance, which professional institutions are required to have. This is why the students, who come to a professional music school, will have more realistic performing experience playing on a professional stage, the kind of experience they often dream of when watching American Idol or their favorite performer on YouTube.
Forté Academy of the Arts has earned its respect in the community by volunteering its services and providing its students with a quality music education; as a result, we have built special relationships with many local businesses and venues. Recitals and showcases are special events for family and friends to celebrate the progress that has been made, and for the student to take pride in their accomplishments. This is why we schedule our frequent yearly traditional events and multiple recitals. Small piano studios, in many cases, would have only one yearly recital.
5. Readiness to Learn
There is often a subtle, but clear transformation of the student preparing himself for learning during the drive from home or school to the professional music school. He knows he’s going somewhere for the purpose of learning. He knows he needs to be prepared. He knows he will be asked to participate and perform. The student who goes to the professional music school will be more alert, more attentive and more respectful. Teachers who go to students’ homes often report lack of concentration on the student’s part and not being mentally geared for learning.
6. Scheduling and Billing
A professional music school takes care of billing and scheduling so that the teachers can focus only on what they do best – teaching. Many musicians are stereotypically uncomfortable with the business aspect of music lessons. Most teachers are relieved not to have this responsibility when they can finally work for a music school instead of having to deal with the student or their parents directly on this matter. At Forté Academy of the Arts, students, parents, and teachers love our automated billing system, especially because it enables all of us to focus on the things that matter the most: our students and their music progress.
7. Future Advancement
Children need strong resumes to gain entrance to high-level universities. Students who have taken their lessons in a professional music school will be much more highly recognized than those who study in their homes. We also thoroughly prepare students who wish to apply for music scholarships.
8. Professional Verses Amateur
Students simply do better in a professional environment. You wouldn’t just let anyone cut your hair; you would go to a professional hair salon that provides you with a great customer service and an experience worth your time and investment. The same applies to our children. Making the extra effort will give you and/or your child the best learning experience possible, and it is an overall a wiser investment, both financially and personally.
