Hey Mom, hey Dad. Now that the kids are back in school, they’re going to be looking at which teams to join, which school clubs they’d like to try and… wait! What? Your daughter wants to learn to play the bass guitar? That’s fantastic. No, it’s not? What’s wrong?
As it turns out, the music classes at her new school are few and far between, plus currently they are only offering piano or acoustic guitar. This young lady’s been a fan of the bass since she heard her first thunderstorm and curls her nose up at the idea of strapping on a heavy piano every day for practice 😛 Um… and she’s never really cared to learn six-string guitar. You’ve looked into private lessons for her, but the one guy teaching bass guitar in town offers only one lesson per week.
Once per week?
Sure, we know how this works. Each class consists of a particular musical topic, and the teacher will have her go through the theory and then the actual playing of the material. At the end of the lesson, he will give her hand-outs and study charts, and she will work on it until they meet the following week.
So, what happens when she gets home and doesn’t understand something and needs a helping hand between lessons? What if her lesson is Friday after school and she has to stay for detention for spray painting a picture of Flea on the bathroom wall? (it could happen) Whatever the reason, if this young student misses a lesson, or needs supplemental help, private lessons that hang on someone else’s time schedule might not be right for her; she might give up her dream to play the bass! And that’s not good.
