I know mastering piano normally starts off at a younger age, but Sara reassured me that I could definitely learn. I look forward to lessons each and every week… – Marissa Dunne, Seaford NY

Got Some More Questions About Lessons?

I have answers. I’ve listed the most common questions and answers below for you.

interview
  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    Will I be able to contact you during the week if I have a question?

    Yes! You can contact me any time on any day during the week with any questions you may have and I’ll get back to you usually the same day. You can even send me short video clips if you’re not sure if something is right and I’ll let you know so that you’re not practicing something wrong the whole week. I’d rather you ask me sooner rather than later and have to work twice as hard to undo a bad habit.

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    Am I too old to learn the piano?

    Absolutely not! You can learn the piano at any age unlike a lot of other activities. There are plenty of advantages to learning piano later in life and it’s important for adults and even seniors to have a creative outlet in life to express themselves. I don’t teach children the same way I teach adults so rest assured that you’ll have custom lessons tailored to you and your learning style.

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    I don’t have a lot of time to practice. Can I still make progress?

    You don’t need a lot of practice time to make progress, you just need CONSISTENT practice time. If you only have 30 minutes a day to practice, that’s completely fine, but make sure you practice every day to really cement your new skills and ensure you fully comprehend them. I’d recommend no less than 30 minutes a day since you won’t be able to get through everything you need to practice in less time than that, but practice as much as you personally can if you don’t have 30 minutes in your day. You’ll just make slower progress, that’s all. Slower progress is better than zero progress. Think about your day or your week in advance and schedule your practice time. Maybe wake up a little earlier or do it right after you get home so you don’t forget. Make it a routine!

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    Do I need to buy a piano/keyboard to start lessons?

    Yes! It is essential that you have an instrument at home for lessons and to practice on during the week. If you don’t have an acoustic piano or can’t get one, then a digital piano is fine, but it MUST have 88, fully-weighted keys. Any keyboard that has less than 88 keys is basically a toy and do not have the key weight you need to develop finger strength or dynamic range so please be ready to invest in the proper instrument before you begin lessons! If you end up changing your mind or you stop lessons down the line, you can always sell your piano/keyboard and if you have an improper keyboard right now, you can sell it and put the money towards a better one! Avoid the mindset of investing later once you think you’re serious about lessons; you’ll be doing yourself a disservice from day 1.

  • image/svg+xmlimage/svg+xml
    How long will it take until I get good?

    Well, that is entirely dependant on what your definition of good is, how much time you plan on devoting to practicing, and what your goals are! If you practice every day and your goal is to be able to play some simple Classic Rock songs, for instance, you can expect that to take 6-12months. If your goal is to be able to play advanced classical music, expect that to take longer. If you don’t practice often, you will take much longer to reach your goals.
