Music Lessons for the Main Line and Surrounding Area
How much is your time worth to you?
✦The average music lesson is 60 minutes long
✦The average commute is 20-40 minutes each way between getting the kids ready to leave, getting them into the car, driving in traffic to the location, finding a parking spot (if there is one), waiting for the lesson to be over, then driving all the way home.
✦Rain, sleet, ice, and snow will make travel more dangerous, difficult, longer, or sometimes impossible!
✦Most locations still charge you for the lesson that they consider your obligation, when you miss it due to road closures, traffic or weather.
✦With Traveling Musician, if we can’t make it to your lesson, you don’t pay. Mother nature and road conditions will never again make you pay for lessons you don’t get!
✦Any lesson without the materials needed is a lesson wasted. It is very easy to forget books at home in the rush of getting out the door.
✦Valuable lesson time isn’t eaten up by unpacking and repacking the instrument. This can be about ten minutes of lesson time you are paying for that is being wasted.
✦Instruments are delicate and respond poorly to being tossed around in the car and even to changes in humidity and temperature. Half the lesson on location is wasted when an instrument gets knocked out tune in transit and the teacher has to fix it.
✦Teachers can help their students practice more efficiently when they understand how and where the student is practicing at home. There are some bad habits that cannot be corrected until the teacher works with the student in their regular practice space.
✦Students are more comfortable expressing themselves in a familiar environment. When they know that strangers are able to hear everything they do, they are less likely to take musical risks.
✦A controlled home environment is less likely to be noisy or distracting to the student.
Our lesson plans include music that the student likes to meet long and short term educational goals. Our signature seven-point systematic method is an approach we have developed over our many years of teaching experience. Through this method, our students don’t just learn to play their instruments, they learn how to be musicians. We also teach them techniques that carry over to other aspects of their life like how to study, how to organize thoughts and ideas, and how to learn in new ways.
Have 10-20 minutes in between lessons to decompress and go in to each lesson relaxed and prepared.
Do not handle the payment. Traveling Musician takes a small flat fee for billing. This means that you don’t lose time from your lesson to pay your teacher.
Having happy teachers is what makes Traveling Musician an exceptional organization. They teach private lessons full-time and have made teaching their career. This means that when you begin lessons with a Traveling Musician teacher, he/she will be your teacher until you wish to discontinue lessons. We attract the best music teachers in the industry and they are invested in their students’ success!
