Frequently asked questions
What if I can’t make my lesson?
We understand that illness, conflicts, and other situations come up. We ask that you let us know 48 hours in advance* when a lesson will need to be rescheduled.
What if I don't have an instrument to practice on?
Illumination offers take-home instruments as a material fee. Pricing and availablilty can be found in the "Lessons" section of our website. If we do not provide the necessary instrument, then we encourage you to inquire with our partners in the community.
Why should I learn to play an instrument?
Learning to play an instrument has multiple benefits for people from all walks of life. Among these benefits are improved creativity, patience, confidence, discipline, and memory. Furthermore, sharing your appreciation for music can improve your social life, reduce stress, build a sense of achievement, and best of all, it's really fun.
What if I've never played music before?
No problem. Illumination's music instructors are university trained and have experience performing with orchestras, rock bands, and as soloists. No matter your skill level, we will be able to find the correct teacher for your education.
How much should I practice?
There is no such thing as practicing too little. There is, however, an old adage that has been modified in recent years to "perfect practice makes perfect." This means that it is not about how often you practice, but how well you practice. Our instructors will teach you the practice techniques and mindsets needed to become a proficient player.
What if I want to discontinue my lessons?
We understand that music may not be everyone's forte. Illumination's Music Lessons are a year-long commitment and—per the registration paperwork—our cancellation policy is as follows:
Is Illumination Music Studio open during public school breaks?

Where do I get music books?
ILS will provide the books, sheet music, and ther reading materials needed for your lessons. We charge a material fee for books, lab equipment, rewards, and other necessities.
