Jean Village Music In-Store Music Teachers
By PAUL BOTHNER MUSIC | July 13, 2017
If you’re in the Centurion area and are looking for music education, then the Jean Village Music Store has you covered.
Learning an instrument isn’t always an easy task. The three biggest decision you will make in your first few weeks on your music journey will be:
a) Selecting your instrument
b) Buying your instrument
c) Finding a teacher or selecting your learning method
Selecting Your Instrument
If you are not certain what instrument you want to play, then a trip to YouTube will be your best starting point. Search for music that has the instruments you might be interested in. If you can’t think of anything specific just search for the instrument name followed by music.
So if you’re considering piano just search “piano music”. Listen to a few different instrument styles and pick whichever excites you the most.
If you’re still unsure, then get in touch with one of our guys and let us help you discover your dream instrument.
Buying Your Instrument

Find The Right Teacher or Teaching Method
If you decide to go the route of going for music lessons, the Jean Village Music In-Store Music Teachers are on hand to help you achieve your goals.
Most students progress faster and stronger with a teacher. A teacher can correct you if you make any mistakes and guide you towards the best approach for learning. Statistically speaking, you will progress slower without a teacher.
If you would prefer to not use a teacher, there are various online resources available to you.
