How Long Should a Piano Student Practice?
 
Hello and greetings from your Great Neck, NY piano teacher, Ira Baslow!
 
This a question I'm often asked by piano students and the parents of their children taking piano lessons.
 
I'd like to shed some light on this subject by discussing some of the variables that effect the time allotted for piano practice.
 
1. A big factor is what level of playing the piano is the student at. A beginner will practice less than an intermediate and advanced student based on the fact that their is less material and compositions to work on.

Pros and Cons of a Digital Piano vs. an Acoustic Piano

 
As mentioned in the previous article "How to Buy a Piano Within Your Budget" always buy the best piano in it's class that you can afford.
Piano lessons on a digital piano
This leads us to the subject of digital pianos. They have come a long way. The sound is immensely improved. The touch and sensitivity has the feel of an acoustic piano. Also features such as recording directly into the piano is a great plus. Being able to instantly listen back to your performance is a fantastic way to objectively hear where you can improve your playing.
