Private or Group Lessons for Preschool Children?


Are private or group lessons better for preschool children?

This is a questions that consistently comes up as parents are looking for the best program for their child. For  children up to age six  I absolutely recommend group lessons over private lessons. Children learn best in an interactive dynamic environment where they are having fun.  In a group lesson they learn so many skills that become invaluable for their whole lives. Preschool music literacy programs develop the musical ear, contribute to brain development and build a solid foundation for music. In a group program, children learn to create music with other people which is both rewarding and educational. Group piano or singing lessons encourage practise habits, as students are motivated to practise by the other children in the class. 
Music is a lifelong pursuit, the journey is just as important as the destination.
