Generally, it includes basic piano technique, such as hand position, finger strength and dexterity, and proper posture.

Music theory, including scales, chords, and chord progressions is also an important part of the curriculum.

The academy also offers a variety of musical styles and genres, such as classical, jazz, and pop, which are essential to be a well-rounded pianist.

Repertoire study, including pieces from different eras and styles are also part of the curriculum.

But all of this will be discussed during your first free introductory lesson, so it is customized for your needs.

A good piano teacher will be patient, encouraging, and able to adapt to your child’s learning style. It’s important to schedule a trial lesson with a few different teachers to see which one your child feels most comfortable with and has the best rapport with.
This can vary depending on the teacher and the student’s skill level, but typically beginners will have weekly lessons. As the student becomes more advanced, lessons may be increased to twice a week.
We recommend at least 1 hour per week if you are seriously considering learning and improving your skills as a pianist. But options are available from 30 minutes, 45 minutes, 60 minutes or 90-minute lessons.
Learning piano is a process that can take anywhere from a few months to several years, depending on factors such as the student’s aptitude, dedication, and the quality of instruction. Beginners who practice consistently and receive regular lessons can expect to learn basic techniques and play simple songs within a few months. However, to become proficient and able to play more complex pieces, it can take several years of consistent practice and study.
As a beginner, it’s recommended to practice piano for at least 15-30 minutes a day. However, it’s important to note that consistency is key in learning piano, so it’s best to practice every day. As you progress, you can gradually increase your practice time to an hour or more a day. Additionally, it’s important to break your practice sessions into shorter, focused sessions throughout the day rather than one long session. This will help you to retain information better and avoid burnout.
Children can start taking piano lessons as early as 4 years old. However, the best age to start lessons will depend on your child’s individual maturity and interest in music.
