Piano Lessons FAQ

Is piano easier to learn than guitar?

It can be, especially for children or adults with little time or patience.  But there’s other factors to consider when choosing piano vs. guitar.

Is it better to take classical piano lessons vs. pop, rock, and jazz?

Neither is better.  But you should research the difference between classical and contemporary piano lessons ahead of time.

How much should my child practice piano?

Ideally, fifteen minutes every day should be set aside for focused practice sessions away from noise and distractions. Quality is more important than quantity.  When students forget to practice, the piano lesson turns into more of a supervised practice session, which wastes money and slows progress down.

Does your music school have piano recitals?

Yes and more! Our pianists perform in local coffee, theatres, and clubs. We’re a performance based music school. Also, check out the open mic night venues along The Danforth.

Are there any cognitive benefits to learning piano?

My child has Autism/ADHD. Can piano lessons help?

We’ve written extensively on the benefit of music lessons for children with ADHD. Research has shown it can grow new brain fibre connections in the area of the brain that is typically underdeveloped in children with ADHD.

Do I need to buy a real piano to take lessons?

No way! We offer free rentals for new students for two months.  We also sell digital Yamaha pianos lower than other local music shops in Toronto.

At what age should my child start taking piano lessons?

The average age when kids can sit calmly and focus through a 30 minute piano lesson is five. However, if your child shows a lot of musical talent and interest, starting at four is not unheard of. Allow your teacher to select an appropriate piano method book for your child’s age.

What else should I know about learning piano?

We’ve prepared an extensive FAQ here to answer your questions.

How do I find a good piano teacher?

A trial lesson is the best way to determine if a teacher is right for you. During your trial lesson, there are 6 things you should consider when shopping for a piano teacher.

Is it true that it’s never too late to learn piano?

Adults face different challenges than kids when taking piano lessons for the first time. Here some great tips to succeed.

How do I stop my child from practicing piano too fast?

Buy a metronome! It takes some getting used to, but it’ll put the brakes on that runaway freight train tempo and help to stabilize your child’s sense of rhythm. Most digital pianos have a metronome built in. Ask your teacher to use the metronome in the lesson.
