Frequently Asked Questions
You will need to provide a safe and private space where lessons can take place. It does not need to be a separate room, but the space has to provide an environment where students can focus and fully attend. Please remove any objects that may be harmful and/or distracting the students.
What do I need to provide for in-home music lessons or music therapy sessions?
If you are taking piano lessons, you will need to provide an acoustic piano or decent electric piano with touch sensitive feature (weighted keys) with a stand and chairs for the student and the teacher. If you are taking guitar or ukulele lessons, you need to have your own guitar or ukulele.
If you are taking music therapy sessions, the therapist will bring instruments, props, and a guitar. If you would like your child to also learn instruments, you will need to provide them.
If you need suggestions and recommendations on which brand, model, or size to buy, please contact us.

How do I get started?
Please start with our starter’s package which includes 5 sessions. This will give the student enough time to get to know the teacher or therapist. The therapist or teacher will also assess the student’s learning style, strengths, interests, and preferences in order to tailor session content. Hug Music emphasizes the importance of customizing the contents of the session to each student in order to bring the best out of our students. Our instructors and therapists carefully observe students and we usually start to see great progress after 2-3 sessions.
What is the cost for sessions?
What if I need to cancel a session?
We request that students inform the instructor or therapist of your cancellation at least 24 hours before the session. Your therapist or instructor will tell you their cancelation policy prior to the first session.
Is there a student recital?
Yes! Hug Music hosts recitals twice a year. We typically host a December recital for students taking music lessons and a June recital for students taking music therapy sessions.
