How long is a lesson?

We most commonly schedule lessons in increments of 30, 45 or 60 minutes; however, we can schedule lessons for as long as you like! Many of our students begin with lessons around 45-minutes in length, and increase or decrease time depending on their individual needs.

Ideal lesson length is dependent upon the student’s age, experience, and interest level. Generally, children under 6 years of age do well with 30-minute lessons. We recommend at least 45-minute lessons for children 7 or older. Kids tend to do well with longer lessons when they have a strong interest or desire.

If you need some guidance on what length of time might be best for you, feel free to reach out to the office. We are happy to help!
