In-Home or In-Studio Music Lessons?

We’ve been in the music lesson business for over 30 years, so it’s no surprise that we offer the best in both in-home and in-studio music lessons. There are only a couple of differences between the two, but they are significant. We hope this post will help if you’re wondering which one you’d like to do.

Our Courtnay & Rowe in-home clients tell us that the main benefit to not going to the studio is that we drive through crazy traffic so they don’t have to. They also love being able to get things done at home. Having your great teacher show up at your door week after week – well prepared and ready to engage and teach – is a wonderful luxury. Sure, it’s a bit more expensive … but who wouldn’t want that?

Here’s a funny fact: that’s what we thought before we opened our first neighborhood studio 10 years ago!  When we opened the Vinings studio, we learned a thing or two. Some families wouldn’t miss the experience for anything. (We’re just now opening our East Cobb studio.)

For one thing, our studios are comfortable and fully stocked for students. Another is the group vibe, where students get to see, hear, and often interact with other students who are also excited about learning music. The Studio is a happening place! For many kids and parents, that environment outweighs the drive, especially at a lower overall cost.

So each has its unique benefit, but other than those very specific reasons, the countless benefits of music lessons are totally independent of where the student learns.

Just Take Music Lessons!

We pride ourselves on doing the best job in both, and we thought you might be interested in hearing how our clients list out the benefits of studying music with us.

Here are 13 of the top benefits and values that we hear, irrespective of where students learn:

  1. A meaningful and fun activity, where you play the songs you want to play
  2. Getting children off the electronics
  3. Being smarter in school
  4. Being more confident
  5. Excellent teaching staff
  6. Having a skill to be proud of
  7. Less performance anxiety, which translates to school and life
  8. Better concentration
  9. Friendly, professional front-desk staff
  10. Emotional health
  11. Understanding and maintaining a commitment
  12. Finding a lifelong love of music
  13. Improved physical health

In-Home or In Studio? Just Do It?

Take it from the early 1800s poet Walt Whitman. A soulful and visceral poet, he wrote of music as “a god, yet completely human… supplying in certain wants and quarters what nothing else could supply.”
