Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the #1 reason to study at Rochester Academy of Music and Arts?

Our instructors are warm and friendly, and get to know each student and parent on a personal level. We work with you to craft a lesson plan that fits your individual needs and the student's favorite type of music. Whether you're playing in local bands, a seven year old taking their first lesson, or a fifty year old returning to an instrument after many years, we’ll set goals to achieve your musical aspirations.

What styles of music do you teach?
We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, worship, and classical. We combine the important fundamentals with the music YOU want to play. With all of the teachers we have, you are sure to find the best match for YOU.

How qualified are your music instructors?

Our music instructors are highly qualified, all have teaching experience, and most importantly, they have a passion for teaching. Being a musician doesn't automatically make you a teacher--that's why we search for those who are best qualified for mentoring our music students!

We search New York for the top teachers, who embody the high values at Rochester Academy of Music and Arts. Most importantly, our instructors strive to relate their teaching to each individual student's learning style. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the USA and Europe and have years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly, and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.

What will I learn from music lessons at Rochester Academy of Music and Arts?

Our music teachers understand that every student is an individual, with personal musical needs and goals. We make it a priority to tailor how we teach and what we teach to your individual needs.

If you enroll here for music lessons, your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child. Together, you will develop a plan to achieve your goals! We love beginners, so even if you don't know where to begin, we can help!

How long does it take to learn how to play a brass instrument?

There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn to play a brass instrument. With regular practice, a basic level of playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons enjoyable.

I don't have any musical background or ability. Can I still help my child practice?

Yes. Even if you don't have a musical background you can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child practice. By simply monitoring that they are doing exercises a certain number of times per day the student will progress. Parents will occasionally sit in on their child's music lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should sound or how the student should be positioning their hands.
