I just wondered whether weekly one hour lessons is the norm for an adult complete beginner (as proposed by teacher)? It seems a long time to concentrate.
Not the norm but a great idea if you can afford it, are motivated and want to progress fast.
I don't think concentration should be a problem (!) for an adult - I've never heard of adults having a concern over this.
It depends how much practice you can do in the week.
I think one hour lessons every two weeks often works well for adults.
You could always give it a go and see. If the financial side is a a worry, though, your teacher should be able to propose shorter or less frequent lessons too.
