Piano Lessons FAQ
Q. What is the recommended age at which to start piano lessons?
A. The recommended age is 5 years. However, it is never too late to start learning and enjoying piano. We have students as young as 4 years old and as mature as 79.
Q. We want to try piano lessons. Do we need to buy a piano right away?
A. No. At the beginning you can rent or buy a keyboard.The most important thing to know when renting or purchasing a keyboard is it that it must have full size keys (each individual key should be the same size as an individual piano key) and it must be touch sensitive (if you hit the key hard it makes a loud sound, if you hit it softly, it makes a soft sound). It is best to get a keyboard with at least 60 keys so that you don’t outgrow it too quickly (a regular piano has 88 keys). Academy can lend a 61-key keyboard to young beginners. Please also read an article “Where to buy your first piano?” on our Frequently Asked Questions page.
Q. Can you recommend piano technicians or piano movers?
A. Yes, we have a list of reputable technicians and piano movers.
