Do I need a piano at home to take piano lessons?
It is ideal if you do have a piano at home, but you
can start lessons with our piano teachers by using an
electric keyboard to practice on at home. Most of our
students rent or buy small electric keyboards practice
on at home. We recommend a keyboard that has regular
sized keys and a touch sensitive response. A touch sensitive
keyboard means if you press a key harder it will play
louder and if you press a key softer it will play quieter.
Do I need a full drum set to take drum lessons?
No you do not need a full drum set to start drum lessons.
Students can start lessons by using a practice pad.
This is a small plate sized pad that costs about $30
that is used for practicing basic drum rhythms.
Do you supply rental instruments?
Yes we do! We can even supply a loaner instrument at
no extra charge, depending on inventory, for the first
two months of lessons. Our regular rental fees are 10%
of the retail value of the instrument and paid monthly.
Should you decide to purchase the rental instrument
you can do so at any time. Any rental fees you have
paid and apply towards the purchase price.
How long does it take to learn an instrument?
There is no set answer of how long it takes to learn
an instrument. With regular practice a basic level of
playing can be accomplished in a few months. Most of
our students take lessons on a long term basis because
they want to be constantly improving and they find the
I don't have any musical background or ability; can
I still help my child practice?
Yes. Even if you don't have a musical background you
can ask the teacher for advice on how to help your child
practice. By simply monitoring that they are doing exercises
a certain number of times per day the student will progress.
Many parents occasionally sit in on their child's music
lesson to get an idea of the proper way a song should
sound or how the student should be positioning their
