FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What ages/level do you teach?

Rebecca teaches all ages and levels from total beginner to working professional!

Piano students can start as young as 4 years old. Voice students can start at approx 7 or8 years old, although voice and general musicianship together is reccomended for kids under 8. A more intensive vocal study can begin when the student is a little older. Of course, the right time to start lessons depends on student. Contact Rebecca if you are wondering if the time is right for you or your child to begin lessons.

 

 

I am an adult with little or no musical experience. Is it too late to start lessons? 

It is never too late to start music lessons! If you have always wanted to sing or recently developed an interest in the piano, now is the perfect time to begin lessons. Adults tend to fear that because they did not grow up taking lessons that they cannot learn. This is not the case! If you have a love of music and want to further develop your musical talents, lessons are for you!
