Does PSoM offer every other week lessons, what are some reasons why we do not?
Here are a few reasons why do NOT allow every other week lessons:
- From our experience in the past, 90% of students taking lessons every other week will drop out of lessons (and stop learning) within a month or two.
- When something comes up and you have to miss a lesson due to illness or scheduling conflicts it will be an entire MONTH between lessons. Habits and skills are created and learned by constant, regular exposure. Every couple of weeks with occasional month sized gaps are not sufficient for the vast majority of music students to make any real progress.
- Things come up and you will need to reschedule sometimes. With weekly lessons at least you will get 3 lessons in a month and most of the time you can reschedule the one you missed so that you don’t loose any progress you have made recently.
- 90% of scheduling errors (2 students showing at the same time or showing at the wrong time) occur with students taking every other week lessons. This is a huge problem for students, teachers and music schools.
