“It’s like a whole orchestra, the piano for me.”-Dave Brubeck
Many music educators suggest that if someone wants to learn music, they should take piano lessons before any other instrument. And for good reason! It’s complex enough to provide a great foundation for music theory, yet simple enough that children can begin learning as early as 4 years old! But that’s only the beginning of why the piano is a fantastic instrument to learn: https://www.hoffmanacademy.com/blog/piano-a-great-place-to-begin/ Take piano lessons to set you up for future success in music, but also for the inherent fun in playing a keyboard!
“A guitar is like an old friend that is there with me.”B. B. King

Guitars are versatile, approachable, portable, and iconic, not to mention fun to play! http://hubguitar.com/articles/guitar-is-the-best-instrument-to-learn Adults can begin guitar lessons at an old age, while children can start to play as soon as they are large enough to hold the instrument, which makes guitar lessons an exciting and rewarding experience for everyone!
Theory, Songwriting, & Composition Lessons
“One of my biggest thrills for me still is sitting down with a guitar or a piano and just out of nowhere trying to make a song happen.”-Paul McCartney
Most music schools don’t go beyond teaching instruments and basic music theory to students, but there are whole other musical worlds to explore! Singing or playing an instrument is a gateway to writing songs, composing scores, transcribing music, or arranging! The more you learn your instrument, the more you get out of these creative endeavors. And the more you create, the more you get out of your instrument!
