Do you teach Private Lessons?
The short answer – no, we don’t.
Now, we’re not saying they don’t have their place, rather something we don’t view as the best way to teach music to children.
So, you may find yourself asking “Why do you think this way?”
There are 2 main reasons:
1 – It’s the way we learnt – the content, the solo nature, and the disconnect between us and the teacher are the main reasons our love affair with music didn’t happen until long after we finished Private Lessons.
2 – We’ve taught over 5000 hours of Private Lessons, and it was the same as how we learnt.
We didn’t like learning that way, so we weren’t surprised when we saw our students seeing lessons as a chore.
And to top it off, maybe somewhat controversially, traditional music lessons teach students how to play an instrument, NOT how to make music.
We couldn’t continue teaching the same way we were taught, and for that reason, Sneaky Keys was born.
We want the kids of today to enjoy music, to understand how to play and create music, as well as develop skills they will carry with them as they grow.
