Should we be in the studio during our child’s private music lessons?

We ask that the parent or caregiver who is most likely to provide help at home remain in the studio during all lessons for our youngest students. This helps to ensure that the children practice according to instructions and avoid developing bad habits. Your child’s instructor will help you determine when your child is ready to take his or her lessons without an adult in the studio. (Please also keep in mind that we prefer not to have siblings or friends sit in on lessons. If you have other children with you, please provide them with homework or activities that will keep them occupied in the lobby or at our homework stations.)
