Where can I go for Music Lessons for Kids?

I need a Top Rated and Recommended Music Instructor. Where do I find one?

You can start Kids with Instrument lessons with teachers at any age, from very young to starting at Middle School, or even higher. Popular classes are Piano, Violin, Drums and teachers provide lessons for all of those around Plano. Many start at a young age and have been consistently practicing and learning for months and years.

Research shows there is also a link between learning to play an instrument and the development of parts of the brain for kids too!

There are a number of options for you to look at when choosing a teacher. Meet them and learn about their personality, experience, approach and qualifications. Learn as much as you can about their teaching style. Spot the signs if it appears that a child isn’t ready to learn to play an instrument. Or, learning to play an instrument becomes a chore for parents who are having to repeatedly encourage their child to practice.

Check their fees to ensure they are within your budget. Check if they need their own instrument at home and how much practice they expect between lessons.

The most popular instruments are

  • Piano (Jayne Dahl, Frisco School of Music & Performing Arts, Music Institute of North Texas)
  • Guitar (Frisco School of Music & Performing Arts, Music Institute of North Texas)
  • Drums (Frisco School of Music & Performing Arts, Music Institute of North Texas)
  • Violin/Strings (Frisco School of Music & Performing Arts, Music Institute of North Texas)
  • Singing and Voice (Frisco School of Music & Performing Arts, Music Institute of North Texas)
  • Band Instruments – Clarinet, Trumpet, Flute, Saxophone and Tuba
