Why Take Private Music Lessons When Enrolled in Your School Band or Orchestra Program?

If your child is enrolled in band or orchestra class at school, then you might think there is no reason to enroll them in private music lessons. Students that take private music lessons on an instrument will improve faster than if they are only learning in the classroom. It is difficult to get individualized attention and guidance in a classroom setting because there are many students. If your child has a genuine interest in an instrument, or maybe their band/orchestra teacher thinks they have special musical talent, then you should consider enrolling your child in private music lessons.

Better Ensembles
Typicaly, the more students enrolled in private lessons, the better the ensemble sounds. If a few students are taking private music lessons and excelling at their instrument, other parents might see that and enroll their children as well. Band/orchestra ensembles often compete in competitions and if the majority of the students are also taking private lessons the ensemble should do well.

Individualized Attention
If your child has an interest in learning an instrument, then school band/orchestra classes may not be cutting it. Students interested in learning an instrument will typically practice more outside of class and be genuinely interested in learning the instrument. Some students in band/orchestra classes may only be taking the class to socialize and therefore slow the progress of the entire group down. Private music lessons will give your child the training they need.

Musical Talent
All children learn at different speeds, and it can be discouraging if children see their peers excelling at something that is taking them more time to learn. Private music lessons can speed up a slower learner because a private instructor can address issues the student may be having with learning, or teach him/her better ways to practice.

Innate Ability
If your child has a serious interest in music and would like to pursue music as a career, then private lessons are a must. Music schools and ensembles (even youth ensembles) are extremely competitive and children will have to take private lessons to ensure they are getting the proper training.
