Why should I choose Imagine Music Inc? Imagine Music Inc. is unique from other music studios because we offer both in-home and in-studio lessons as well as teachers who range in instruments and genres of music. Because of this, many students take lessons on 2 different instruments with different teachers and there is no hassle of having to do paperwork and registration through 2 different companies. All our teachers go through a rigorous interview process and we only hire those who have clean background checks and are capable and have experience in teaching music.

About Music Lessons

Will I need to own an instrument before starting lessons? Yes, it is required that you have an instrument that you are able to practice on before you begin lessons. However, many music stores offer the option to rent musical instruments from them which would work out well if you are just trying out a musical instrument. Visit our Instruments Taught page to find out more about renting/purchasing tips on your instrument.

How long will it take me to learn an instrument? The speed of learning greatly depends on how much the student practices. The teacher will guide you, give you goals to work towards, and oversee that the student is practicing correctly, but the student can only reach their goals by practicing. This being said, students will begin techniques and songs on their instrument immediately and will be well into learning songs within a few lessons.

How soon can I begin lessons? Lessons can start immediately once registration is complete and a teacher is available. Visit our Music Lesson Inquiry page to learn more.

Aside from renting or purchasing a musical instrument, is there any other material that is needed to begin lessons? Yes, music books will be required. Your music teacher will tell you what music books you will require. Your music teacher may also have these books available to you for purchase at the lesson or you may have to purchase these books yourself at the local music store.

Regarding In-home music lessons, what does the music teacher require for the lessons? Imagine Music Inc does provide a list of materials to each client that specific teachers requests. These items may include a metronome, music stand, recording device, CD player, etc..

Can you teach four year olds? Some of our teachers will teach four year olds with music classes or piano lessons. These lessons are usually available in the daytime hours. To read more about what ages we teach, visit our Age Requirements page.

Can I choose who my teacher will be? We match up teachers to students based on the student’s instrument, level of skill, and goals with music, as well as the teacher’s availability. If students would like to request a teacher, they may do so, but it isn’t always guaranteed that the teacher will have availability.

The registration fee covers the time it takes to set up and maintain a client’s account, as well as contributes to the recitals (which are free for students), and secures the student a time slot.
