Beginning September 2017, Music and Play will be introducing M&P Certified In-Home Private Lessons. These private lessons will be delivered by the same quality teachers that we choose to employ at our studios and within the same quality guidelines that our families trust us to deliver.
So why is Music and Play getting into this market? Simply put, we are in the business of providing quality arts education and we believe that there is signifcant room to improve on what students in Calgary are currently getting from in-home private music lessons and from unlicensed, in-home studios. Those who know our Company, know that our consideration of entering this market is a huge step and one that it is not taken lightly. We recognize the desire that families have for convenience but students can also be damaged both physically and emotionally by a poor lesson experience. Experienced arts teachers have committed decades of time and effort to become great educators, however for many consumers, their choice of arts education may be defined by the answers to ‘is the studio within 5 minutes from my house,’ and ‘is there a Starbucks nearby?’
In-home music lessons can bring the best of both worlds – convenience and quality. To do so, there is a need for the standards and rigour of a high-quality instructional facility, combined with the convenience of the local private music teacher who is teaching out of their house. There is a need for someone to help consumers understand what quality in-home music education really looks like – and Music and Play is just that someone.
If you are interested in our Certified IN-HOME Private Lessons, please contact us to schedule an assessment so we may help create a plan to meet your musical growth. At Music and Play we take great care to ensure we match our students with the right teacher to ensure the greatest success.
Following the assessment we will recommend an appropriate placement for your consideration. Please note that like our in-studio lessons, we do not accept students under the age of 6 for private lessons. Specific minimum age guidelines are as follows:
- Piano: age 6 (group piano based lessons are available for ages 4+)
- Violin: age 6
- Guitar: age 8
- Voice: age 9 (group classes available for ages 5+)
- Woodwinds: age 9
- Percussion: age 9
