Frequently asked questions

We recommend these starting ages for the following instruments :

Piano: 4 years old
Suzuki Violin : 3 years old
Cello : 6 years old
Guitar : 6 years old

It is highly recommended for children to start with either piano or violin first and then learn other instruments later if interested.

We are available by appointment only. We offer a free private trial lesson that allows you to come check out the school, meet a teacher, and see how the lessons work.
If you would like to check out the school, please contact us through email at or phone at 201) 787-9911.

Without practice, progress will be extremely slow and your child might lose interest pretty soon. We’ve seen this happen over and over again. Students are required to practice daily at least the length of their lesson every day. For example, if a student receives a weekly 30-minute lesson, the student is required to practice at least 30 minutes each day.
- The more practice, the better musician you will be.
- It is important to practice everyday - even if you only practice for 5 minutes!
- You want to make practice an everyday habit like brushing your teeth.
- This is so increasing your practice time later on will be easier as you improve!
All lesson cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance. Parents need to fill out the online cancellation form and notify the manager through text. Without submitting the cancellation form, students cannot make up their lesson. Students can receive two make-up lessons per semester. If the student needs to cancel more than two lessons per semester, those lessons cannot be made up. There are no make-ups for no show or same-day cancellation. Contact the manager if it is an urgent matter (accident, illness, etc.).
