Piano Lessons FAQ
Q. What is the recommended age at which to start piano lessons?
A. The recommended age is 5 years. However, it is never too late to start learning and enjoying piano. We have students as young as 4 years old and as mature as 60.
Q. We want to try piano lessons. Do we need to buy a piano right away?
A. No. At the beginning you can rent or buy a keyboard.The most important thing to know when renting or purchasing a keyboard is it that it must have full size keys (each individual key should be the same size as an individual piano key) and it must be touch sensitive (if you hit the key hard it makes a loud sound, if you hit it softly, it makes a soft sound). It is best to get a keyboard with at least 60 keys so that you don’t outgrow it too quickly (a regular piano has 88 keys).
Q. Is there group classes available?
A. Yes. We have a kind called 'form your own group class' where you can find one other student to form a semi-private 2 persons class or 3-4 persons (depending on current school student's registration.
