Do I need my own instrument to practice on and to bring to my weekly lesson?
Yes, you absolutely do need to have your own instrument & to bring your own instrument to your weekly lesson.
Here are a few important reasons:
- Music is a language, if you don't use it daily, you won't get better at it. So you really need your own instrument so that you are able to practice daily in order to improve your musical skill and language.
- Music is something you love to do, and it's a very personal thing that you're doing. Think of the instrument as your own tool to what you want to do to improve yourself.
- It is also important that you bring your own instrument to your lessons, because your teacher can help you get to know your instrument well, and would be able to tell you if it needs any repair or tuning. For string instruments especially, you will need to tune it every time you play it , and your teacher can help you learn to do so as well.
