Music lessons are a good way of furthering your learning and improving your playing. Since it is indeed an investment, getting music lessons is not something you just decide on the spot. It should be mulled over, and decided based on sound reasons.
You see, not all music lessons are the same. If you are going to invest on it, you should invest with the one that’s worthy in the first place.
Deciding can be pretty tricky and quite daunting. You have the questions but sometimes you are just too afraid to ask them. Especially the music teachers. You want to ask them as they are the frontliners of the music lessons, but just too intimidated to do so. Or too embarrassed even to ask a teacher, with these questions.
Worry no more, we got this for you. We have listed the five questions students are most afraid to ask their music teachers. Read on to know the answers to your questions.
I easily get bored in class and my mind flies a lot during the lessons. Sometimes, I am easily distracted, too. Are music lessons boring?
We really do understand your concern. Sometimes, even though we have the full resolve to be really attentive, the mind wanders before you even know it. And it would be just a shame, to waste your hard earned money when you can hardly pay attention to class.
You try hard to listen but sometimes you just get bored. You are in this predicament where you really want to listen but your short attention span doesn’t allow you to. How do you deal with inattentiveness? Would it just be great if this concern has a solution?
At National Music Academy (NMA) Maitland, this problem can be addressed. Why does your attention veer away in the first place? Because you are bored. Why are you bored? A top reason is familiarity.
If the lessons are not new to you, most likely you will space out. Why not? You already know it. This even happens to those who are first-time enrolees of music. However, even newbies sometimes have an existing knowledge of music already.
As they say familiarity breeds contempt. And NMA Maitland avoids going down this road. Before the students start their lessons, their music knowledge is first assessed. Based on these results, a lesson plan is developed according to the student’s existing knowledge.
What the student will have is a customised lesson fit for his needs. The interest is maintained as the student will be learning fresh lessons every session. There’s no opportunity to be bored at all.
