A music lesson is an individual or group instruction in the singing or playing of musical instruments. Lessons typically take place in a private setting with the student and a music teacher, although group instruction can also be offered. Music lessons are offered as a form of amateur and recreational music education as well as professional training for those students wishing to pursue a career in music performance.
