Common Music Questions & Answers

Q: Do I need a piano at home to take lessons?
A: That would be the ideal situation; however, you can start taking piano lessons by using an electronic keyboard to practice on.  Most of our students buy a small electric keyboard that you can buy at Wal-Mart, Sam's or Costco.  We recommend that the keyboard have regular piano size keys and weighted keys.  Smaller children do not need weighted keys.


Q: Do I need a full drum set to take drum lessons?
A:  No, you do not need a full set of drums to take lessons. Students can start by using a practice pad set, which includes the pad, a stand, and a set of sticks. This kit costs approximately $49.


Q: How long does it take to learn an instrument?
A: With regular practice, a basic level of playing can be accomplished on any instrument within a few months.  Most students take lessons on a long term basis, because they want to be constantly improving and they find the lessons enjoyable.


Q: I don't have a musical background or ability; can I still help my child practice?
A: Yes. By simply monitoring that they are practicing exercises a certain number of times per day the student will progress. Many parents will occasionally sit in on the student's lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should sound or how the student should be positioning their hands.
