Frequently asked questions
Is my child ready for piano lessons?
Most students begin at age 6, although some 5 year olds may be ready! Some things to consider are how well your child follows directions and his/her ability to focus. Does your child have skills such as understanding of left vs. right, up vs. down, ability to write and count, etc? Since each child is unique, a trial lesson may be the best tool for gauging your child's "readiness". We can also try out lessons for a while and decide if your child is ready or should wait a bit. Please also see my FAQ for children aged 3 - 5.
Do I need an instrument at home? What kind?
Yes, an instrument is needed for practice between lessons.
Is there any age limit for learning to play the piano?
Absolutely not. There are many benefits for adults, including seniors, to learn an instrument.
Do you offer any classes for younger children e.g. aged 3 - 5?
Currently, this is something I am considering as an Early Music Education Class. If you are interested, please contact me for updates! As of right now, classes will likely be offered beginning in early 2019.
