What kind of Commitment is Piano Lessons?
Lessons for beginner and intermediate students should be a weekly commitment. To see significant improvement, it may take a minimum of two years of regular training and practice. For measurable improvement, it is imperative that the student develops effective practice habits and is prepared for each lesson. Students can expect to see high level skills after five years of training and mastery around 10 years. There is usually an increase in confidence around six months.
