Lessons: School Aged-Students

I am pleased to offer piano and theory lessons throughout the school year. The following is the recommended lesson length based on age/level:

  • Beginner = 30 min: 6-11 years old; Piano Adventures Course – 30 minutes
  • Intermediate = 45 min: 12-15 years old; Grade 1 to Grade 4 RCM – 45 Minutes
  • Advance = 60 min: 15+; Grade 5 and up RCM – 1 hour
  • Adult Students = 60 min

Please note: this is a general guide based on age of student; student’s goals, experience, interest and level of playing will ultimately affect recommended lesson length
