We have not only a flexible lessons plan but a flexible approach to teaching. Every student has different needs. Some students are casual and an hour of enjoyment playing is all they are looking for others want to perform or have careers in music. Our proven success as teachers has been as a result of our understanding of what the student needs.
Simon Cole is the Principal clarinet with the Prince George Symphony. He is also a performed and recorded composer and a performer on saxophone .
Lessons can be 30, 45 or 60 minutes in length. Usually, lesson length is determined by a student’s age, ability and experience. 30 minute lessons are perfect for beginners. Due to the physical nature of wind instruments, longer lesson times can become tiring. For the first year or two, a 30 minute lesson should suffice unless RCM exams are being taken. 45 minute lessons would be recommended for students of high school age who have been playing for more than 2 years and for those taking RCM exams, Grades 2 – 6. 60 minute lessons are ideal for more advanced students, adult learners and those taking RCM Grade 8 and beyond.
In other words if you want to play in orchestra or do an exam or compete you should be taking an hour lesson.
