Instructors recommend the starting age for guitar to be 7 (sometimes 6) due to the size of the instrument and the finger dexterity required. For students younger than this, we recommend our Introduction to Ukulele Class. Piano is always an excellent foundation instrument, providing your child with basic musical knowledge that can later be applied to guitar lessons when the student is older.
All students will need an instrument for home practice between lessons.
About Private Lessons
Brookline Music School is committed to ensuring that students of all ages and abilities have a positive private lesson experience. Students are individually placed with a teacher based on learning style, experience, and musical interests.
Private lesson students also receive the benefit of multiple opportunities to perform in recitals, salons, exclusive departmental events, workshops, and masterclasses.
Enrollment is open year-round so students may begin private lesson study at any time, including during the summer.
