Many of our teachers are also fluent in multiple instruments, making it possible for them to teach a variety of instruments in one visit. This can be incredibly beneficial to helping students better understand music in general. While learning one instrument at a time can be a very effective way of progressing towards technical mastery, learning the basics of multiple instruments can be better for understanding music in general. Understanding multiple instruments can help a member of a band better know their roll when interacting with their group. It also helps members of a band clearly communicate their ideas. Learning drums is the best way to understand timing, while learning guitar or piano is the best way to understand harmony, and learning voice is the best way to understand melody.
