Frequently asked questions
Do I need to have an instrument at home?
YES. It is mandatory to have an instrument at home because you will have to practice. Without practice, learning an instrument might take forever. :-)
How long and how offen will I have to practice?
How long to practice the piano depends on each student`s age and level.
What age should I start learning Piano or Flute?
Piano: For children, starting learning to play piano might vary a lot, from the circumstances to the skills of the children (finger independence, etc.). I started playing piano at the age of 4 because I had my mother and my sister already doing it and it came as something natural to me. Studies shows that the most common age when children start plearning the piano is between 6 years and 8 years old. Starting as a teenager or adult, can be also never too late. It might only take a bit more patience.
Where and when will lessons take place?
You can choose where the lessons can take place: at the studio in Zürich, at my home, at your home in Zürich or at your home in Lucerne. Choosing the location might depend on my and your schedule and ability to commute. We can talk about this before deciding to start the lessons.
How can I pay?
After I send you the bill, you can make a bank transfer.
How do I find out about my child’s progress?
You can anytime attend the lessons. Twice a year, I organize concerts for the students. If attended regularly by your child, you and himself/herself would see the progress very easy.
How can I cancel lessons?
Lessons can be canceled free of charge 24 hours in advanced and for health reasons or urgent situations. If you want to quit taking lessons, you should inform me one month in advance. In case you paid a 10 Lessons Package, you will get a refund for the remaining lessons.
