Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to Big Beat’s Music’s Frequently Asked Questions. We have been serving central jersey since 1983 with quality music lessons for all ages and abilities. If you have questions, chances are we’ve been asked them before and have the answers. Browse our FAQ’s section below for answers to some of our most common questions. If you have a question that is not answered in this section, feel free to contact us or call us direct at (732) 774-8861.


What do you learn during Music Lessons?

This is one of the most common questions asked by parents and prospective students. The answer is that our music teachers take the time to learn about their students, and become familiar with their music tastes and goals. Our music lessons are geared for all ages and music abilities, therefore we do not give our students generic lessons. For example a 5 year old beginner guitar player, or a 9 year old special needs child will have different lesson needs than a middle aged person picking an instrument up after having played as a child. If you enroll for music lessons at Big Beat we will work one on one with you to deliver music lessons that cater to your individual style, preference, and needs.


What instruments do your offer lessons in?
