No matter your age, experience level, or goals, learning music is a powerful way to enrich your life. However, this doesn’t keep misconceptions about music lessons from convincing some people they’re not worth the time and effort. If you’re on the fence, read up on the realities of taking music lessons.

“I won’t have time to practice”
It is one of the main reasons people don’t take music lessons. However, if you want to bring the joy of music into your life, you need to make time for music.
At 123 Rock, we offer in-person and remote classes that fit your busy schedule. We understand that life sometimes gets in the way of music, so our experienced teacher will work with you to build a lesson plan with manageable practice schedules!
“I won’t get to learn music I actually like”
Not true! This is a harmful misconception because it keeps many people from learning music. Teaching the music students are interested in is key to their success, especially at a young age.
That’s why we tailor lessons to your interests and likings. So whether you’re into Taylor Swift or Chopin, we’ll adapt the creative session to each individual personality.
“There’s no value in learning music.”
Music isn’t just for professional musicians. Music is for all of us. Learning music will benefit you profoundly, whether you go pro or play songs for family and friends.
There is incredible value in learning music, from proven cognitive and emotional gains to forging valuable social connections. It’s also important to note that there are countless performance opportunities for musicians, no matter how famous or successful they are.
“Music lessons are only for kids”
You’re always young enough to learn to play an instrument, sing or write music. But, as adults, we sometimes think that the joy of taking on a new challenge is only for kids. On the contrary, learning an instrument also benefits adults by improving memory, providing critical social benefits, and helping with relaxation.
“I can teach myself”
There’s no doubt that we’re living in an incredible age regarding DIY education. YouTube videos help us cook, tackle home improvement projects, and even learn music.
But while technology is an excellent supplement in music education, it can’t replace the knowledge, passion, and hands-on experience of working with an instructor. Every student is different and needs a unique form of instruction.
