Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best age to start lessons?

My students range from 6 to 75 years old. The best starting age is between 7-8 years old when a student’s hands are sufficient in size & strength and a student can focus for a 30 to 45 minute lesson.

Do I need to get a piano before starting lessons?

Yes! You need a car to learn how to drive, right? A traditional upright or baby grand is ideal, a digital piano is fine and an electric keyboard is okay only if it has at least 62-68 weighted keys.

Do you give recitals?

Just as cell phones have replaced landlines, I have replaced the traditional, old-fashioned recital with my piano workshops for students.  The workshops include not only performance but also discussions about topics (a peek inside a piano; how the piano came to be; how to create a practice routine; how to practice, etc.).

How long are lessons?

You can choose either a 30 or 45 minute lesson.

How much do lessons cost?

Fees are within the area’s going rates and will be provided during your visit to the studio, so you can see first what you’re getting for your payment.

How do I make payments?

You have the option to pay weekly at the time of each lesson or monthly.
