  • Do I need to learn piano before other instruments?
    Students can start on any instrument at their young age (4 year old and above). Nowadays, there are more and more method books designed for young beginners to start on violin/guitar/cello so it is suitable to start on the instrument straight away. Teacher will be teaching rhythms, music reading to start with instead of getting into difficult technique with young beginners.​Teacher will also incorporate both games and instrument playing in the lessons.

  • How long should my lesson be?
    30 mins - Young beginners Young children do have relatively short attention span and a 30 minutes lesson is recommended so that they can concentrate better. They could also have longer 45mins lessons which includes music theory if preferred. Book a trial 45 mins - Intermediate students Intermediate students who are preparing for exams and mature student are recommended to have 45 minute or 60 minute lessons because the pieces they will be learn are usually longer, which will take more time to go through in the lesson. And they will also have studies, exercises, and additional materials on top of the pieces they’re learning.​ Book a trial 60 mins - Advanced / Adult students Student doing AMEB Grade 4 and above and adult students are recommended to have 60 minutes lesson because they can concentrate better and go through more variety of materials in the lesson: such as pieces (or songs), studies, and exercises with detailed explanation and discussion with their teachers.
