'It would be great to do something special together.'
Most people are very busy with their day-to-day lives, and there isn’t a lot of time put Most people are very busy with their day-to-day lives, and there isn’t a lot of time put aside for each other. A shared Partner Lesson is an enjoyable and satisfying way to explore music together. Effective partner lessons have consisted of two friends, siblings, partners, husband and wife, parent and child, or even grandparent and grandchild. The 'partners' will motivate each other to improve – and the enjoyment will go well beyond the lessons as you practice and progress together!
