How often should my child be doing their music lessons?
This depends on the age of your child. Younger students (4-5 year olds) should do at least one lesson per week in one of the areas marked all ages. Choose what area you'd like to learn from and repeat as much as you want. OR, go to our "Pre-Planned Lessons" area and do one of the lessons each week. You can always do more if your child is ready. Also be sure to download the worksheets that accompany the lessons and spend some time working on those as well.
How do I know if my child is learning enough?
Each child learns at a different pace. If you child is staying engaged and enjoying their lessons they are learning, that’s what we want. Being consistent will deepen learning and make the learning last.
Is this a replacement for private lessons?
Yes! But, My Music Workshop also works perfectly along side in person lessons.
What are the benefits of learning music online vs. in person?
Learning music online is the most convenient way to learn music. With online learning becoming more common, adding online music lessons is a great way to round out a complete learning program. In person lessons and classes are also great when they are available and if they are done through quality programs and teachers and are a great compliment to online music education or on their own.
What will my child learn?
We offer a lot of music instruction for your child. First we have piano lessons, drum lessons and ukulele (more lesson areas are coming soon).
What’s the difference between My Music Workshop and private music lessons?
Private lessons focus on one instrument and learning the skills to play that instrument. With the right teacher private lessons can be amazing. My Music Workshop offers piano lessons, drum lessons and ukulele lessons (more coming soon). Our lessons can be repeated as many times as you would like and they contain built in practice, called "Jam Alongs." These are real musical tracks that kids can play their instrument along with.
Playing to music is one of the best ways to improve on an instrument. We offer that chance with each lesson.
We also have additional music lessons focus on a broad range of musical topics that can enhance learning an instrument, or can stand alone to develop a child’s musical interest and skills.
How do I support my child as they learn music?
We know most parents aren't musicians. The best thing you can do is encourage your child to participate in their lessons, be consistent and be supportive of their musical journey. Learning music takes time and patience, but it should be fun. Who knows, if you’re not a musician you may learn a lit bit from My Music Workshop too!
