The Benefits of Private Music Lessons For Your Child
Every parent wants to put their child in the best position to succeed.
In music, this means including private music lessons into your child’s practice and learning. There are many differences between group and 1-on-1 classes that can help expand abilities quickly and lead to better instrument mastery.
Here are the top three reasons private music lessons are beneficial for your child:
Pacing Private lessons allow for a personalized pacing to learning. More lesson time may be spent on practicing a certain trouble section and the parts your child plays well may only be reviewed a couple of times. Your child is in full control of the pacing of their lessons and the advancement of their overall progress toward mastery.
Private That’s right, the privacy of a 1-on-1 lesson is extremely beneficial to your child’s learning. The instructor is without distraction and can watch and listen to your child carefully, picking up on every trouble spot. This allows the instructor to fine tune the lessons to improve your child’s playing.
Practice Not only does your child control the pacing of the lessons, they also control the curriculum. Practice time during lessons is spent on the exact things your child needs to work on. They will also receive a personal lesson plan for at-home practice that further enhances their skills and works directly on their trouble spots. Private lessons also motivate students to practice at home more - because instructors act as accountability partners, encouraging your child to improve through regular practice.

Fall River Arts Academy is the only private music school in the Fall River area that give their students the opportunity to earn awesome colored wristbands, certificates and personalized trophies for doing well in their lessons!
BUT they have to earn it! To earn an award our students get tested every 3-6 months by their instructors in their lessons. This encourages practicing at home, which parents LOVE.
Do other schools offer trophies and certificates? A few. But none of them inspire their students with smiling faces by giving them full color, really cool “Musical Ladder” wristbands that they can show off to their friends.
