Practise Time

How much should I play the piano to get really good and keep it fun?

Beginners to Preliminary level first) exam                    4-5 days of 20 minutes plus your weekly lesson.

Working on grade one or two exam                                4-5 days of 30 minutes plus your weekly lesson.

Working on grade three or four exam                             4-5 days of 45 minutes plus your weekly lesson.

Working on grade five or six exam                                  5-6 days of 60 minutes plus your weekly lesson.

Working on grades seven or eight exam                 5-6 days of 90-120 minutes plus your weekly lesson.

In addition to these minimum times, theory of music must be completed, usually only taking 30 minutes or less per week up until theory grade two. Higher levels may need more study time. You may be asked to study more some weeks if you have difficult pieces or if you have not quite got them where expected. Please feel free to have some free play time and experiment with sounds, chords and melodies for fun when you are up to date with your study. Maybe you will compose a great sounding song yourself
