    The Hamden Academy of Dance and Music believes that private instructions is the best way for anyone to learn how to play an instrument. The one on one instruction means that students are given instruction that best suits how they as an individual learn. Private lessons also mean that they are able learn the type of music they personally are most interested in. Also with private lessons a teacher can focus 100% of their attention on that one student to ensure that things such as hand positioning, posture or understanding of particular concept are correct. If a student has a particular difficulty in one area, the teacher can work on it without hampering the progress of a class of students and alternatively if a student is excelling in one area, the teacher can move on. We offer 30 minute, and 1 hour lessons.
