Frequently asked questions

Guide for buying your first piano

What’s the right age to begin music lessons?

What’s the right instrument for my child?

That question is often asked by prospective students. Our teachers make it a priority to get to know you on a personal level and to become familiar with your personal musical needs and goals.

We do not treat every student the same in terms of what and how we teach.

A seven year old having their first guitar lesson will have very different needs than a fifty-seven year old taking up piano for the 2nd time after having had lessons as a child.

The main reason to choose our school as your music lesson provider, is that we are sensitive to the fact that every student is an individual.

If you enroll here for lessons, we will work with you to make a plan that will fit your needs and musical preferences. At the first piano lesson your teacher will ask you about your favorite type of music, and set goals to help accomplish whatever musical aspirations you have for yourself or your child.

It's great for piano students to start with a full size piano. The hammer action of the weighted keys builds the finger strength of the students and provides much stronger technical development. However, spending considerable amount of money on a piano is not an appealing prospect.

Keyboards are a more budget friendly and is suitable for beginners to start practicing with. It is recommended that the keyboard you practice with has full sized weighted keys. Teachers will advise parents when the potential of the student has developed past the keyboard.

We teach all styles from rock, pop, jazz, country, blues and classical.

At OC Musica, our youngest piano students start from three years old. It's a good idea to start piano lessons when the child is able to sit down, focus for at least 15 minutes in a classroom environment and is willing to learn/practice.

Our teachers have received their education from prestigious institutions. Many of our instructors have gone on performance tours of the US and Europe and have over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.
