Frequently Asked Questions

What is a good keyboard for piano lessons?

Should I quit piano lessons?

If you're not happy with your piano teacher or with piano lessons in general, it may be a good idea to take some time off from your lessons to reassess your musical goals. Consider working with a different teacher or self-teaching through online tutorials if music is an important aspiration.

How long does it take to learn piano with lessons?

On average, beginning piano skills, such as learning basic notes and hand positions on keys, takes between four and six months, while intermediate and expert levels can take years to achieve. The amount of time it takes to learn can vary, depending on the student's ability to absorb information and the amount of time put into practice.
