Frequently Asked Questions
Will I need a piano?
If you are a total beginner, or playing just for fun, a good quality keyboard with full octave range and weighted keys is sufficient. However, if you are aiming to develop good piano technique, you need to have a piano.
How long does it take to learn the piano?
It varies from student to student. Playing is a physical and cognitive skill, so improves with regular practice. Motivated students will see impressive results in just a matter of weeks. Most of our students take lessons on a long term basis because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons enjoyable.
Do parents need to attend lessons?
If your child is of primary age, it is very beneficial for a parent/carer to attend every lesson. As a parent/carer, you are an important motivating factor in your child's life. Children usually value what their family values and if you show enthusiasm for your child's musical journey, they will benefit exponentially.
Can I pay weekly or monthly?
Learning the piano, like going to the gym, happens incrementally. Both require that you take a long view. Unless you are a pre-professional who needs specific coaching for a specific performance, learning the piano is best approached like training a sport. Weekly lessons and regular practice over the term of a number of months will result in progress. This is the reason we invoice by term.
