It’s a very important task to choose what instrument may be right for you or your child. Luckily here at the studio we offer lessons for every student. This great variety of instruments and lessons available makes it simple to meet the needs of every student beginning or continuing lessons.
When just starting out, it is important to start with an instrument that the student is interested in. It may not be the type of instrument you had in mind, but it is very important to begin with something that you can be passionate about. If a student is learning on an instrument they don’t care for there will be very little success. This also makes motivation for practicing a challenge.
For Piano, there are several characteristics in a student that can lead to success. Students who are good thinkers and curious tend to do well with this instrument. Violin is great for kids as young as 3. This instrument has varying sizes that can be used. As long as they can hold it up they have a great chance at doing very well.
Brass instruments such as the trombone, tuba, and French horn are great instruments to learn on when first starting. These instruments can become tricky when braces or other orthodonture are required. Braces can make it difficult and painful to produce the necessary notes from these instruments. They can be overcome, but it requires extra patience and some adjustment.
Those who prefer center stage and are more extroverted tend to do better as vocalists or playing flute. These kids who are very talkative and outgoing like to be at the front of the band and lead the other instruments. Other great choices for the extrovert, is the saxophone and the trumpet. These instruments are great for those who are outgoing as they are usually playing the higher melodic part of the pieces.
