So your child has been taking lessons for some time now. Maybe it’s been just a couple years, maybe it’s been 10 years. At any juncture in a student’s musical journey, they will invariably question if they want to keep taking lessons.
Once a student is interested in taking lessons, a common question is, what kind of styles of music can a student learn? The short answer, is that any style is possible to learn. The long answer is contingent on some specific things such as the level the student is at, the student’s age, their experience level, and the ability of the teacher to introduce them to the different styles.
This is a great question! And one that I think parents of students are interested in knowing. In this very achievement-oriented society that we live in, it’s understandable to want to know how much a student could learn in the first three months of lessons. To be fair though, a student’s marker of accomplishments for music lessons is a very nuanced exercise.
