Thanks for your interest in Leggy Fish Music Lessons. Before you begin music lessons, please note that in order to play your instrument well enough to play tunes you enjoy and to maximize your learning in lessons, you must invest some of your time. Daily practice of 15-30 minutes is recommended for beginners as consistency is important when learning any new activity. Even 5 minutes a day is useful! Our studio consists of busy adults with full time careers (some with families) and children in school. If you are an adult, evenings are a great time to wind down and enjoy a little you time with your instrument. If you are a child, mornings and early afternoons right after school work well as far as energy goes!

If you can commit to spending a little time with your instrument, then keep reading!
