FAQs About Piano Lessons

No, you’re never too old to start learning the piano!

The piano is known for being one of the most beginner-friendly instruments, and many adults, including seniors, discover a passion for it later in life. Don’t worry if you have no prior experience at all—our instructors will guide you step by step to establish a strong foundation.

If you’ve ever been curious about learning the piano, now is the perfect time to give it a try.

Consider starting with a single drop-in lesson to experience our teaching. Whether you continue after the lesson or not is entirely up to you. If you decide to go with regular lessons, we have a monthly package that is more affordable than single lessons.

As a music school that has taught hundreds of students for decades, we assure you that learning music can become a lifelong passion and has the power to change your lifeThere’s no such thing as being ‘too old to learn’ when it comes to music. Don’t let your age discourage you from pursuing your passion for music.

No, you don’t need to know how to read music notes before starting piano lessons with us. While being able to read music can be helpful, it’s not a prerequisite. We’ll teach you how to read music gradually during your lessons, so try to relax and enjoy learning at your own pace.

Absolutely not! You don’t need any prior musical experience to start piano lessons. Many beginner students of ours begin their piano journey without any musical background and progress beautifully at their own pace. Piano is one of the most beginner-friendly instruments, and learning it is an exciting adventure open to everyone.

Having a piano at home for practice can be beneficial, but it’s not essential to start lessons. Many beginners begin their piano journey using a keyboard, and they can consider investing in an acoustic piano later if they decide to continue with their musical pursuits.

If you’re unsure about which piano to purchase, feel free to consult with us. For beginners, a digital piano should suffice perfectly well. Modern digital pianos replicate acoustic pianos with high fidelity. We can recommend models that are right for your specific needs and budget.

If you prefer an acoustic piano, we offer several reputable brands. Additionally, we have used pianos available that may better suit your budget.

You’ll learn pieces that suit your level, focusing on reading music, mastering rhythm, and expressing musical nuances. Theory lessons cover scales, chords, and rhythm patterns. Practice includes refining performance techniques like dynamics and interpretation. Your instructor provides feedback to improve your playing and assigns practice tasks to reinforce skills.

Our lessons can be tailored to suit your needs. We can follow the RCM curriculum for a more academic approach, or if you prefer a less formal experience and just want to enjoy playing the piano, we can adjust accordingly. Let us know your preferences and goals, and we will customize your lessons to match.

We do offer online classes, but generally, they are only for special circumstances where attending in person isn’t feasible. As a music school with a long history of teaching hundreds of students, we firmly believe that the benefits of in-person lessons can never be replicated by online instruction.

First and foremost, the sound reproduced through electronic devices is never the same as the richness and depth of a live performance. Moreover, important factors such as posture, body alignment, hand position, and foot position are not easy to address online compared to in-person sessions.

While our preference is for students to attend lessons in our studio, we understand the need for online options due to factors like distance or physical limitations. Therefore, we try our best to deliver high-quality instruction in online settings when requested. Feel free to let us know if online lessons are your preference.

Our lessons offer durations of 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The best duration for you depends on the teacher’s approach and your age and attention span. For younger children or beginners, a 30-minute session is often recommended to start with.

Most students benefit from weekly lessons, which provide consistent practice and progress. However, the frequency can vary depending on individual goals, availability, and budget. If you’re unsure whether you can commit to weekly lessons, you can always opt for a single drop-in lesson when you’re available.

A beginner practicing piano should aim for regular sessions, starting with around 20-30 minutes per day. This duration allows for consistent improvement without overwhelming. As skills develop, practice time can gradually increase based on individual progress and goals.

Children can typically begin learning the piano around the age of four or five, depending on their level of interest, attention span, and physical readiness. Since every child is unique, we tailor our recommendations based on their individual interests and needs. Let us know more about your kids, and this will enable us to suggest the most suitable lesson duration and find the best-fit teacher for them. 

Absolutely! A teacher can help you learn to play classical music, popular songs, or any genre you prefer. Learning music you enjoy enhances motivation and enjoyment, so feel free to let us know what you’d like to learn.

Yes, we offer instruction in the RCM curriculum. Our experienced teachers can guide students through RCM levels, helping them prepare for examinations and develop a well-rounded musical education.

Absolutely! For advanced piano students, we offer lessons with a piano teacher holding an ARCT degree.
(The Associate Diploma (ARCT) and the Licentiate Diploma (LRCM) are the highest academic standings awarded by The RCM Certificate Program. )
