FAQ

Noel Wentworth charges $31/half hour private Guitar, Bass or Ukulele lesson

10 years old is the magic age to start Bass lessons. But honestly, as soon as the student can reach the first fret of the neck of the Bass Guitar comfortably.

Students will need either an Electric Bass Guitar, Bass amp, Guitar strap and Instrument cable.

When you sign up for lessons, you book in for a specific weekly time slot. Most commonly, September through June, as the Upbeat Music Academy follows the “school calendar”.

Lesson fees are either payable IN FULL for the entire year in advance of starting your lessons, or you have the option of choosing an averaged monthly pre-authorized payment either through your credit card, eTransfer or cash. Please note: casual cash payments are not available.

  • Method book(s), sheet music, worksheets, lesson binder/notebook for lessons and assignments
  • Even though our Guitar teacher is equipped with a Computer, if the student is wanting to learn or need help with a particular song by ear, please bring your device the song is on (Ipad, Cel Phone, Etc.).
  • If it’s your first Guitar lesson with us and you have taken lessons before, please bring any previous learning material to your lesson.

Yes! If the student is willing, twice a year we arrange a teacher supported, student showcase for our students to perform at outside our studios.

Having anxiety before a performance is completely normal but small performances like this are an important life skill to develop.

If the student understands they are supported and shown appreciation for the hard work they have put in, the more confident they will be with other areas in their lives.

Comfort with public speaking,  interacting with others and feeling safe for going outside your comfort zone all starts with goals like this.

This is highly encouraged as a life lesson.

First off, we’ll miss you!

Two lessons notice must be provided for withdrawal. Immediate withdrawal is subject to a two lesson cancellation fee. The Upbeat Music Academy reserves the right to terminate lesson contracts on unpaid accounts.

If you want to get good, you need to put in the time.

Many of us are used to instant gratification now a days. Please understand you will get out of the Guitar what you put into it time wise.  The more consistently you practice, the better you’ll get.

On average, 30 minutes of practice or more a day depending on the level the student is what is needed.

That said most younger students will need to ease into it.

With younger students, start with 15 minutes 4-5 days a week and then increase the practice time slowly till you can get to 20 or 30 minutes a day.

Set a daily time to get in the habit of practicing. For example: After dinner, as soon as you get home from school or a set time 4-4:30pm.

If you do this 5 days a week, take the weekend off.

  • Missed lessons happen from time to time. We do have options like:
    • Online lesson (ZOOM)
    • Extending a lesson (schedule permitting)
    • Rescheduling the lessons for another day (schedule permitting)Keep in mind there are no paid lessons over Christmas holidays or Spring break so make up lessons can be arranged at those times as well. See Lora’s  lesson policies for more information.
