FAQs

What is a good age to begin lessons?

For the piano 5 years old and for the guitar 6 years old.

Am I too old to begin studying an instrument?

You are never too old to begin the study of an instrument.

How much time should my child practice?

For children 8 and under it is recommended that the child practice 10-15 minutes a day. What matters more than the length of time is the number of days.

How much time should I practice if I’m older than 8?

Adults and children above 9 should be practicing closer to 30 minutes a day. What matters the most is the number of days and not the length of time. 10-15 minutes a day for 6 days will show much greater results than one 90 minute practice the night before your lesson.

How long till I can play a song or music?

It can vary depending upon age, practice time and innate ability. But, generally 1 to 3 months is normal.

How long and how frequent are the lessons?

It is best to schedule lessons once a week. It takes students of all ages about a week to practice/learn the material assigned. However, as student’s progress with their instrument and the study of music, it usually requires that the lesson time be extended to 45 minutes and then possibly 1 hour. It should also be noted that as the lesson time is extended the student’s daily practice time should also be extended.
