5 Reasons Why Students Extend Their Music Lessons to 45 or 60 Minutes

by Valentina Jotovic on September 27, 2015


This year we are seeing an increasing number of Music Lesson Students signing up for extended lessons. Consider the following five common reasons why students decide to upgrade their music lessons to 45 or 60 minutes:

1. Commitment. When you extend your lessons, your outlook on your music studies changes from the inside out. Drum Lessons Flemington NJNot that you were trying to “wing” your lessons before, but it clearly takes much greater focus--and preparation--to have a meaningful one-hour lesson experience! And that’s a good thing. You are enjoying your daily practice time because you are challenging yourself to achieve more on your instrument than you ever have before.
2. Go-getters. Students on one-hour lessons are go-getters. Extending your lessons doesn’t mean you’ll be just doing more of the same. You are actually taking your playing to an entirely new level. Your teacher will introduce you to new musical worlds you didn’t even know exist, and you will play songs that become more challenging as your skills develop.
3. Goal Setting, perseverance, and achievement: As you set higher goals for yourself, you become more systematic in how you go about achieving anything in life. Extended music lessons teach you that in order to master the bigger pieces and more difficult songs, you must first work on some short-term goals. You learn that perseverance pays off.
4. Confidence. With more daily practice and more guidance from your teacher, your confidence level will rise. This is especially important when you perform for others. Since your skills are much more advanced, you have greater control over your performance, and enjoy your time on stage.
5. Package deal: Longer music lessons also allow you and your teacher to work on skills that are closely related to your playing, such as music theory, technical studies, ear training, and in some cases even song-writing. In combination, all of these contribute to improving your playing and performing skills.
