The length of the private lesson is determined by where the student is in the repertoire. This way each student has an appropriate amount of time to develop concentration. Time is added naturally to insure gentle increase for any additional material needed for a well-rounded music education.
In general, the guidelines for lesson times are:
- Book 1: 30 minutes
- Book 2: 45 minutes (or mid book 1, if child is old enough)
- Book 4 and up: 60 minutes (or mid book 3)
