1Do I have to have any experience to play and instrument?
No experience is needed and you will find that the beginning stages of learning an instrument happen quicker than you think. With the combination of great leadership of RHM tutors and your self-practice, you are bound to progress quickly.
2Do I need an instrument to practice on?
Learning an instrument is an exercise in muscle memory. Your body adapts with practice – its more about regularity of practice than length of practice time. Having an instrument to practice on is key to having this process happen easily. Speak to us: we can get you a great deal on an instrument to suit your needs. Lovemore Music does hire out some instruments: Saxophones, violins etc [email protected]
