Common Questions About Private Piano Lessons

Get the Answers You’re Looking For

Is learning to play piano hard?

With commitment, practice and the right teacher, learning to play the piano can be a joy.  While students must practice with focus and regularity, sometimes when it is inconvenient or when they would rather be doing something else, the challenge of consistent piano practice can be rewarding and fulfilling.  The piano student becomes lost in the activity as focus transcends entropy.

How many hours a day should you practice piano?

While focused piano practice is more important than the actual time spent practicing the piano, twenty minutes a day, five times a week is an excellent schedule with which to start.  Beyond that, students will become better at planning their time for practice and how much they need to invest as their piano skills grow and their interest in specific piano compositions grows.

What Is the Best Age to Begin Piano Lessons for Children?

Around age 6 is the time I like to begin students on piano.  For some students, Age 8 may be better.  There is a physical coordination involved in playing the piano that is completely based on the physical development of the child.  And, for some, the discipline of practicing the piano will come easier.
