Why Take Lessons?

by Elliott

Many people looking to start playing an instrument often ask themselves this question, "why should I take lessons when I can get a book or watch Youtube videos?" This is a very good point. Books and videos are a great resource for learning new things, but they lack one major element. That element is hands on instruction. There are many subtle changes and techniques that a professional instructor can assist with that a pre-recorded video or a picture and description in a book can't.

Here at Music and Arts, all of our teachers have degrees and several years of experience in the instrument that they teach. Whether you are looking to start from square one or you have been playing for years and want to get to the next level, we have a teacher here for you. We offer lessons on guitar, bass, piano, voice, clarinet, saxophone, flute, trumpet, trombone, french horn, baritone, drums, violin, viola, and cello. Stop by and meet one of our teachers today!
