FAQs

When to Start?

Too soon?

Any age is a good age to start. Generally a six year old student has the language skills and focus to succeed.

It’s never too late to start! Adults with or without prior musical backgrounds often feel enriched through piano study.

How long?

Two, 15-minute practice sessions daily is sufficient for a beginner to see progress.

Thank you so much for your patience, and for all of the time that you spent with both of our kids. I know that they have come away with a great appreciation for music.

Susan, I love taking lessons with you. You make it fun, as well as challenging, and I wouldn’t continue with any teacher who didn’t make me feel great about what I was doing.
