We recommend playing as part of a group alongside your individual lessons, after all, music is to be enjoyed! Join a band, ensemble, or orchestra as soon as possible; you wouldn’t practice football skills for years without ever playing a game or joining a team!
Taking music lessons at any age, old or young is of great benefit and this is supported by a wealth of evidence in the clinical and psychological professions. For most of us, an early introduction to these benefits occurs through school music lessons. Taking this further through private musical instrument tuition will super-charge these lifelong skills and benefits, allowing you to fine-tune your technique, and get you ready to play in a band or orchestral setting.
