In the past we’ve discussed whether or not thirty minute lessons are ok, today we are going to discuss whether or not two lessons a week are beneficial. There are a number of things that affect the answer to this question.
The first concern is the age of the student. Sometimes younger students might not be able to sit still for a full hour so two thirty minute lessons a week can be really beneficial. It can also help the students to refresh their memory and keep a consistent flow of learning and practice. I can’t tell you how many times students have come back to me after a week and not practiced any of their material in the proper ways.
For adult students, two lessons a week can actually be a big challenge. The biggest issue with adults is time management. Just scheduling two lessons can be challenge enough. But having the practice time necessary to be prepared after only three or four days can be impossible for many people. If you find yourself with unlimited time then maybe two lessons a week could be beneficial for you.
It really comes down the individual and the amount of time they have to devote to practicing music. There is no right or wrong answer when it comes to taking multiple lessons in a week. It’s a matter of what you can and want to achieve with your free time.
