Q:

My little one turns 2 in April. Do your preschool music times tend to only be during the day? Are their any weekend or evening sessions?

Mandy Y.  asked on  Nov 4, 2013

A:

You can see a schedule here.

Q:

Do you have preschool classes during the weekend or evening starting in April?

Mandy Y.  asked on  Nov 5, 2013

A:

Hi Mandy, We don't envision preschool classes during after-school or weekend hours because there is much more demand at those times for regular one-to-one lessons. Thanks! David

Q:

The fine print says "new students only". My child is currently registered so does that mean we do not qualify for this deal? Or could we use it for a future month?

Melissa M.  asked on  Nov 4, 2013

A:

Hi Melissa, I'm sorry, this sort of promotion is economically viable only as a means of advertising to new students. Because our teachers are paid on commission and because we only get half of the Groupon purchase price, to extend this offer to existing students would mean our teachers would basically get paid nothing for those students. Hope that helps, David

Hi Sheila, At least a quarter of our students are adults. We'd be happy to help. David

Q:

Does this specifically cover piano lessons? That is the only instrument my 6.5year old daughter wants to learn to play. Thank you. Angel

A:

Hi Angel, 6 is not at all too young to start piano. We routinely have success with kids 5 and up. And piano (or, more affordably, a cheap keyboard) is absolutely the easiest instrument for kids to start on. Thanks! David

Q:

Are drum lessons available?

Jennifer J.  asked on  Nov 3, 2013

A:

Hi Jennifer, Sorry, because we operate out of a commercial office building we can't accommodate the volume of a drum set. Thanks! David

Q:

Do you have someone who can teach my left handed son the guitar?

Diana M.  asked on  Nov 3, 2013

A:

That's a great question with perhaps a surprising answer. We teach left-handed students exactly like right-handed students. In fact, we have 4 teachers who are left-handed and they all play right-handed. The idea is that there are no left-handed pianos, no left-handed horns, no left-handed violins and so forth. Only the guitar is manufactured in left-handed models, and learning to play that way limits a person to the relatively tiny portion of instruments made left-handed. And it makes it very hard to go on to other instruments that aren't made that way. While playing right-handed is what any teacher would recommend, it's not a problem if he's already learned left-handed. Everything he'd be taught would be the same. Thanks! David
