One of the best ways to begin studying an instrument is with private music lessons. Why? Private music lessons are individualized to your learning needs. This can make the lessons more interesting and more motivating, because you can focus on the style of music you love and the specific techniques needed to get you there. Whether you are an advanced student, a gigging musician, or just picking up your instrument for the first time, Double Bar music has instructors to take you to the next level.
Another factor that makes private music lessons so worthwhile is that you develop a relationship with your instructor. This allows your instructor to understand your playing habits (good and bad) and helps him/her recognize your unique voice as a musician. This is hard to address when in a group.
Finally, private music lessons accommodate a busy schedule. Although it is expected that you commit to a specific scheduled time every week, it is based on your own scheduling needs as well as those of your private instructor.

ENSEMBLES & GROUPS
Our ensembles are generally between 6 and 12 weeks, and can meet as little as once a week or as often as five times a week. These programs are a great outlet for students to apply the musical skills they are working on in private lessons to a real life situation with other students and musicians. It's also a great way for adults and kids alike to meet other music enthusiasts interested in collaborating independently! Generally, the ensemble programs fall into one of two categories:
Educational - These emphasize learning about your instrument and music theory, the music industry, or music technology. They can range from instruction in songwriting to how to record your own home demo, and give students tools they can bring home and continue to work on.
Performance - These programs allow students the opportunity to face one of the toughest problems any performing artist faces: the stage. Students learn how to play in a group setting, communicate with other musicians, develop a stage presence, and work on eliminating stage anxiety.
