Importance of private lessons for instrumental education
I wish I had a $1 for every parent coming into our store wishing they had continued with their instrument through school.  I’d be rich!! Playing a stringed instrument teaches commitment, focus, and perseverance. We endorse all teachers in the area and ALWAYS encourage private lessons from the beginning. Although the schools do the best they can with the limited time allotted, private lessons are the only way a student can move ahead and become more skilled playing their instrument.  Anyone that has become proficient at playing a stringed instrument has taken private lessons. Whether it be classical, fiddling, or any style of playing, ask how many players learned it completely on their own. I would bet you would find none. We say, what you put into it, is what you will get out of it. At Kirk Violins, we have a complete list of private string teachers at our store. Please call 406-254-0400 to get names and numbers.  Education is key to success!
