  1. What is the minimum age recommended for my child to begin piano lessons? When should my child begin piano lessons?

  2. Most Children can begin private piano lessons as four or five. Some exceptional cases have been noted from as early as 3 years old, however it depends on their aptitude and attention span. Research is showing that the natural sense of pitch and rhythm is at its peak between ages of 4-6. So it is always better to start them young to get an early foundation in piano study or musically skills and it is never too soon to start music lessons. Top


  3. Do I have to have a piano or digital piano for my child to take piano lessons? Can my child learn begin on a keyboard?

  4. Although having a piano or digital piano is desirable, it is not necessary for beginning students. Beginners may begin learning keyboard skills on a small electronic keyboard for a while; however, the keyboard must have full sized keys and at least four octaves.

    By the time your child progress musically, play dynamically (shaping the phrase of the music), and use a pedal while playing, it is recommended that they move to a more sophisticated keyboard or digital piano which has the three features as below. This will ensure that they develop to use the correct key range, finger strength and control technique while playing:
    • 88 full-sized keys
    • Velocity/touch sensity or hammer graduation action (sound louder & brighter when the keys are struck harder)
    • A damper pedal. Top


  5. Am I too old to start to learn or refresh playing the piano?

  6. You are never too old to begin learning the piano. Many adults are concerned that they are too old or no longer have the ability to learn to play piano, and that is absolutely not true. Although the best time to learn music is before age 7, adult piano students can still develop their musically knowledge and abilities.

    Adult's advantages are more focused, self-motivated, and greater intellectual powers to grasp musical concept than the average children. The many adult students are now taking up piano lessons in later years are living proof that it is never too late to learn something new which opens them to have a more enjoyable & relaxed life, especially while they receive the pleasure and sense of accomplishment. In addition, it is also noted that playing piano is a good exercise if fingers are getting stiff from arthritis. Top

  7. Do I need to cut my fingernails for playing the piano? How should I know if the nail is too long?

  8. All piano students are required to keep fingernails very short to allow the correct hand position. For mastery of touch technique, the fingertips attack the keys at all times firmly, with finger curved. If the nail is too long, they will get in the way and click the keys wobbly.

    The nail is too long for playing the piano, if you can see your nails when looking at your hand palm facing you. Top
