PIANO lessons - Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a lot of piano practice involved?

It is recommended to practice the piano a every day whether it is just 10 minutes or more. The more days per week you practice, the fastest you will enjoy reaching your musical goals.  Also, practice will be rewarding as you will quickly play pieces of music that you didn't think you could master when you started.

We will help you or your child be enthusiastic about practicing piano! We will set achievable goals for each practice session that combined with some self-discipline will ensure enjoyable practice time.

For a child, a regular practice early on, will make his or her future path a much more successful later as she/he will have acquired self-discipline while learning an instrument she/he loves.

Is there an age requirement to start taking piano lessons?

There is no age to start taking piano lessons. It is one of the rare instrument that you can start playing as early as age 3 or as an adult. In any case our experienced piano teachers will assess students abilities and create an individualized learning path.

In general, most children begin lessons as early as age 5. Some younger students successfully begin taking piano lessons as early as age 3.

Some of our adults students decided to take piano lessons because they didn't get the chance to learn it before or didn't carry on as teenagers.  Others have specific musical projects in mind. For example, we had a student that decided to learn piano to be able to play his future wife's favorite song at their wedding! He was kind enough to send us the video (at the bottom of testimonials)

Do I need to own a piano to take lessons?

We understand that purchasing an acoustical piano is a serious financial commitment that should only be undertaken if the student intend to carry on playing piano for years.

While some students prefer to rent other beginning students purchase a keyboard or a digital piano. This is an attractive solution as could even be cheaper than renting in the long term.  If you decide on that direction please choose keyboard / digital piano carefully, we offer some piano recommendations on our website. You can always discuss with your piano teacher if you have further concerns.

If piano lessons are for children, do parents have to stay in class?

Parent's presence during a class is not required but you are welcome to assist to your child's piano lesson if you wish to! 

We don't require parents to stay to support children's self dependence. For children, studies have shown that taking music lessons helps with focus and discipline. Every child is different and if you believe that your child learning curve would be better with you in the classroom, please feel free to stay and assist.
