Group music lessons are a great way to engage students’ interest in their music subjects, or to help them develop supplementary skills. There are some who believe that group lessons are less effective than private music lessons, however this misconception stems from a lack of understanding of the difference between the two techniques and the fundamental advantages of either. It is important to keep the benefits of each method in mind when choosing which type of lesson to pursue. See which lesson method’s benefits fall more in line with your learning goals when deciding which method of study might be best for you.
Group Lessons have some pretty unique advantages. The social nature of a group lesson can decrease the stress levels for a student, while encouraging the development of instrument skill, performance skills, rhythm, and peer collaboration.
