Frequently asked questions
Do I need a piano or is a keyboard fine?
A keyboard is perfectly fine. It is suggested to purchase one with weighted keys to get the same quality sounding notes and feel of a piano. All advanced students must have a ful size (88 key) keyboard.
I have two children wanting to learn piano, can they take lessons together?
Each child learns at their own pace and learns in diffrent ways. For your child to fully bennefit, they will need to take lessons individually.
What is the first lesson like?
The first lesson is all about getting to know you and making sure you feel comfortable. My job is to start you off in a book that is appropriate for you based on your experience, and in a way that you will learn the best. We will talk a little bit about the piano, learn a few key terms, and start playing a few notes.
Should I take 30 minute lessons or 1 hour lessons?
I reccomend starting out with 30 minute lessons to learn in small increments and not feel overwhelmed. As each student progresses 1 hour lessons are highly reccomended to get the full benefit of playing and to advance quicker. The switch between 30 minute lessons and 1 hour lessons usually takes place 4-6 months after starting lessons.
