Private lessons are offered for students age 4+.
Lessons are offered in 45 / 60 / 75 / 90 minute blocks depending on the skill level, age, capacity, and the level of commitment of the student. 30 minute lessons may also be offered to students age 4, however, 45 minute lessons for very young children have always proven a faster improvement.
1 lesson per week is the most common way of taking lessons, however, students who are more serious take 2 lessons per week.
Lessons are focused both on Suzuki method (ear training) and traditional method (note reading). All teachers follow the same curriculum designed by Nirvana.
