What age must a student be in order to participate in Ontario’s Professional School of Music & Art guitar lessons? Normally, we request the students be at least age 7 prior to starting guitar lessons. This is primarily because of their hand size, so some younger students are able to begin guitar lessons as long as they are using a junior sized guitar.
How do our guitar lessons work? Our guitar lessons are available in either 60 minute, 30 minute, or 45 minute lengths. The majority of students will typically have one lesson per week.
Younger students will often benefit from a 30 minute lesson as it allows for the minimum amount of time necessary for the recital of a previous lesson and the education of a new one. Unfortunately, with 30 minute lessons. There is typically not a lot of time left at the end of the lesson for the practicing of newly learned material.
For this reason some students prefer to have a 45 minute lesson as it will allow additional time for more material coverage. Students who learned a faster pace will also enjoy this longer session as it allows for more critique time from your guitar teacher. Additional time that can be had from this length of lesson is often very useful for some students, while others will not necessarily need the additional 15 minutes.
