Interested in learning how to play piano?

Learning to play the piano can be a rewarding experience! Here are some steps you can take to get started:

  1. Find a piano teacher: A good teacher can help you learn the basics and develop good habits from the start. You can find a teacher through local music schools or online.
  2. Get a piano: You’ll need access to a piano to practice on. If you don’t have one at home, consider renting or buying one.
  3. Learn the basics: Your teacher will help you learn the basics of playing the piano, including how to read sheet music and play scales.
  4. Practice regularly: Consistent practice is key to improving your skills. Try to practice for at least 30 minutes a day.
  5. Listen to music: Listening to music can help you develop your ear and inspire you as you learn.

How long does it take to learn to play piano? 


The amount of time it takes to learn piano depends on your skill level, practice habits, and the type of music you want to learn. If you’re just starting out, you can expect to spend at least a few months learning the basics. According to Hoffman Academy, most people who want to learn piano to play for their own enjoyment can get great results within three to five years of study and practice.


Finding a piano teacher near you


There are several ways to find a good piano teacher. You can start by asking for recommendations from family and friends, local music stores, local elementary or secondary schools. 


Word of mouth is the best source to find a piano teacher. You can also find directories of piano teachers in phone books or on the internet. If you live in the United States, one place to start is the Music Teachers National Association. On the MTNA website, you can see a list of certified piano teachers in your state.

Finding a piano teacher for your child

When choosing a piano teacher for your child it is important to remember that you are hiring someone that may have a huge impact on your child’s life, as it is not unusual for a child to stay with a piano teacher for five to ten years. Before beginning piano lessons, it is best to meet the teacher face to face and have an interview.
