We are glad to see you here! Furnished below are a few answers to the most commonly asked questions about our music lessons & our music school. If any of your queries are not answered here, don’t worry! Always feel free to talk to us and we would love to assist you.

Can I have a free trial lesson?

Yes! We offer 15-minute free one-to-one trial session to all new students who are genuinely interested in taking up either singing or instrumental lessons. You can meet your teacher and make sure that the fit is right. During the trial lesson, our teacher can assess your personal goals, musical interests and learning style.

What is a the right age for my child to start music lessons?

Getting your child involved in music at an early age can have a big pay-off down the road.

Your child may be ready to start with an instrument, but may not be instantly capable of exploring the instrument or master their voice due to lack of dexterity or having a pre-adolescent voice. But, our teachers can asses and offer more personal suggestions with the initial trial lesson.

At around the age of four, you can start encouraging your child to identify melodies or pick out certain instruments like piano or violin.

While every child is different, it’s generally a good idea to wait until your child is at least 5 years old before starting guitar, drums or cello lessons.

At the age of five your child can start learning and mastering voice in their range, while incorporating knowledge of breath support, breath placement, posture and positioning.

Woodwind instruments are often best saved until the child is a bit older, better left until the age of 10.

Don’t despair if your child is older, now is always a good time to start.

I'm an adult, am I too old to start learning?

Passion does not have an age! Whether you’re trying an instrument for the first time or picking up where you’ve left off or you are an accomplished player looking to improve skills, it’s never too late to learn music!

Can I try different instruments before enrolling?

Yes! We offer 15-minute free one-to-one trial session to all new students.

Our teacher can assess your personal goals, musical interests and ensure your child has dexterity in the fingers to fully explore the instrument.

Do I Need To Have My Own Instrument?

Yes. You will need an instrument to learn and practice on. Home practice between lessons is an important part of learning a musical instrument.

Are there International Music Exams? Do I Need To Take Them?

We are affiliated with the Trinity College, London and we are one of the most sought-out music schools in the country. We teach the Trinity College London Rock & Pop and Classical syllabus from initial to Grade 8, Associate, Licentiate and Fellowship diplomas (Fellowship is of a commensurate with a Masters Degree). International examiners from Trinity College of London come to our institute to assess the examinees on the allotted exam dates, usually six times a year.

It is not mandatory to take an exam to be a better musician, but it is important to test your abilities and scrutinize your skills. It also helps you to identify whether your music learning process is right or wrong.

The graded music exam offers a privilege of direct evaluation from the experts of music who are aware of the highs and lows of music. The graded exams serve as the set criteria for providing a basic understanding to analyze the progress in a music career.

How often should I practice?

Careful practice and persistence are the secrets to a successful music career. From the day you start learning until you master, continual practice lies as the cornerstone of your achievements.

To get the most out of your lessons, it is important that you practice between lessons.

For young children, we encourage 10 minutes of practice, four or five times per week.

As the children move past 7 years old, they require a minimum of 20 minutes of practice a day, at least four to five times per week.

Intermediate levels require a minimum of 30 minutes of practice a day, at least four to five times per week.

Advanced students who are involved in exams require a minimum of 45 – 60 minutes practice a day, at least four to five times per week.

How long does it take to be able to play or sing properly?

When it comes to learning music, passion and perseverance are necessitated. Continual practice and consistent lessons are critical to a successful music career.

The answer to this question varies according to how much time you can invest in your lessons and practice. Most beginning students will be able to play or sing some beautiful melodies in the school concerts approximately after 24 lessons. For being next Eric Clapton or Lady Gaga, lot of extra practice is required; they tell tales of countless hours of practice they poured in fine-tuning a single composition.

We offer a platform to the talented and young musicians to truly discover their musical potentials and direct those potentials to realize their musical ambitions.

We focus on discovering your creativity and helping it reach its full potential. Our expert music teachers inculcate a life-long passion and drive for music in students.

Do you offer group lessons?

We offer group classes for young beginners.

Where private lessons offer individual attention, group lessons promote peer interaction. Watching their peers perform, gives them confidence to overcome their fear. Children learn to communicate with each other and work together on mastering an instrument or fine-tuning their vocals.

Group of two students in a class option is available if you would like music lessons as a family or as a group of friends.

As a parent, can I accompany my child in their lessons?

If your child is more comfortable for the first few lessons having you in the room, then we encourage your participation as it will help to maintain positive practice routines at home. Following these lessons, we actively encourage all children to attend their lessons without a parent which helps develop your child’s independence and confidence. Teachers will keep you updated regularly with their progress and wherever your assistance is required they will discuss how you can help.

What is the duration of the lessons?

We offer 30 minutes, 45 minutes and 60 minutes lessons.

For Students involved in higher grades, we recommend them to attend two lessons per week.

Are there performing opportunities? Will students perform in recitals and concerts?

Yes, we organise seasonal concerts at local venues where students can showcase their talents.

Children often feel reluctant to participate in public performances, but we progressively encourage them to reap the profound benefits of playing in recitals.

The standing ovation and a round of applause that children receive introduces a sense of achievement in them. Watching your child exudes confidence will make any parent proud.

What if my child lose interest in Music?

Some of the students lose interest in music after a point of time.

Careful practice and persistence are the secrets to a successful music career and holding student interest can be challenging. Conscientious parents can help a student get through this desire to quit.

As soon as we identify disinterest in music lessons, opting graded exam might be helpful as child will have a professional goal to accomplish. Once a student passes an exam, he/she will find some confidence to perform better.

Another option is to take part in the band performances or ensemble training sessions. To accomplish an exceptional band and ensemble performance, strategic rehearsals are a must. These rehearsals allow students to get more actively and attentively involved in their practice. Our rehearsals are designed to help you develop music skills that you need to realise your musical ambitions.
