Piano lessons for children
Learning the piano is an ideal instrument to begin learning music. Most students at the age 5 have the finger dexterity to play the piano. Proven studies have shown that children who take piano lessons improve their eye and hand co-ordination, problem solving skills and improve their IQ. They will develop self-discipline, a sense of proud personal accomplishment and learn valuable lifelong skills that will carry with them until adulthood. During their first year of lessons, children will need daily access to a minimum of a 61 key digital piano with weighted keys. After the first year of lessons, students are required to practice on a full 88 key digital piano with weighted keys or an upright acoustic piano. After the 3rd year of lessons, students will need an upright acoustic piano. Students are expected to practice a minimum of 15-20 minutes per day for the first six months, leading into 30 minutes per day into the 2nd year. Students who practice regularly will reep all the benefits listed above.
Piano lessons for adults
Whether returning to the piano or wanting to check off the bucket list, playing the piano is a great stress reliever. More and more, adults are learning to play the piano for their own enjoyment, and many returning from a break are rediscovering a hidden passion.
