Frequently Asked Questions

Get answers to common questions about lessons at Waterdown Music Academy.
  • Is there a discount for enrolling two or more of my children for lessons?

    Yes! When you enrol two or more children from the same household for lessons, you'll receive beginner lesson books for FREE! Also, the registration fee will apply only to the first child.

  • How long are we committed to lessons for? What if we want to stop?

    Our academy doesn't make you sign any long-term contract. Our students are here because they love their lessons, not because they're locked in. Our lessons are month-to-month… take lessons for as long as you want!

  • What happens if we need to miss a lesson?

    No problem! Just sign up for one of our FREE group lessons.

  • What age can kids start at?

    We start private lessons at age 5.

  • Do you teach adults as well?

    Yes! We have many adult students learning all instruments that we offer at our school.

    Fun fact: a study shows that while 20% of children learn to play music, 70% of adults WISH they had learned… check this off of your bucket list!

  • Do we need to have an instrument at home?

    It's important to own or rent an instrument of your own so that you can practice between lessons… but that doesn't mean that you have to buy an expensive instrument to get started!

    Many of our students start lessons on a 61-key portable keyboard. We have these available for rent for $20/month. They are also easily purchased from any music store, and often even Costco or Best Buy.

    While we don't sell instruments ourselves, we'd be happy to help make purchase recommendations if you're looking to buy your first guitar. And if you're not ready to purchase, we have 3/4-scale acoustic guitars (perfect for kids) available to rent for $20/month.

    Ukuleles are fairly inexpensive and easy to find - any local musical instrument retailer or Amazon should have them available.

    Electronic drum kits are a popular choice for beginners - we can help you out with making a rental or purchase decision when you're getting started with lessons. Another popular and inexpensive option for beginners is to purchase a "practice pad".
