Piano Lesson FAQs
Is a Piano Teacher Really Necessary?
Yes, if you wish to reach an advanced level of piano playing, you will benefit immensely from a skilled, experienced piano teacher in London. Our teachers have performed across the world, studied with the world’s greatest pianists, and spent decades refining their craft. Furthermore, you will progress faster when you have to present your practice material to a teacher on a weekly basis; nobody is checking in on you if you use an app to learn the piano, but if you have a teacher, you will feel a healthy amount of pressure.
Can I Expect Noticeable Progress Right Away?
Whether you are a beginner or an experienced pianist, yes, you will start moving in the right direction in your first lesson. If you have been working on intermediate or advanced repertoire already, our teachers will help you perfect that music and get it to a performance level starting in lesson one. If you are beginner, we’ll make sure you leave your lesson each week with a new concept or skill to practise at home. Of course, your improvement is contingent on your dedication to rehearsing at home – if you only play the piano in your lessons, you won’t improve.
Do I Need A Grand or Acoustic Piano At Home?
No, but you do need at least an 88 key digital keyboard that you can work with on your own. Preferably, if you do have a digital piano, the keys will be weighted. Nothing can match the sound and feel of a grand piano, but urban living doesn’t often allow for a large instrument, and modern digital pianos can be excellent instruments.
