Do I need to/can I stay with my student during their lesson?
You may sit in during the first lesson to ask questions and get an idea of how the lessons will go, but having additional individuals in the lesson room can be distracting to the student and instructor.
Does the student need their own instrument?
We recommend every student has their own instrument so they can apply the techniques and skills they learn when they practice outside of RnRHS.
How do I purchase an instrument?
There are many factors to consider when buying an instrument. Our instructors will be able to answer any questions you may have and help guide you in purchasing an instrument.
What do they need to bring to their lessons?
Students should bring their instrument or drum sticks, RnRHS music folder, book, water, and any instrument accessories your instructor may ask you to bring.
How many lessons does it take to learn an instrument?
Every student is different when it comes to music and there is no time frame on learning an instrument. It depends on how interested and focused the student is during lessons as well as how invested the individual is in practicing outside of lessons.
How is this different than private lessons?
Rock Band is an hour session dedicated to both instrument instruction and learning how to collaborate and play with other musicians in their own band!
Is previous musical experience required?
Yes, we recommend taking private lessons first to become comfortable with your instrument before moving into a rock band.
