What's the difference between Piano and Keyboard?

The main between a keyboard and a piano is how they make noise and get around. A piano is like an old-school rock star—acoustic, heavy, with hammers hitting strings inside when you press the keys, giving you that classic, rich sound. Keyboards, on the other hand, are the cool tech-savvy members of the band. They’re electronic, loaded with features that let you mimic other instruments, change sounds, and even hook up to computers. Plus, you can carry them around way easier than a bulky piano. We teach keyboards mostly, but with all the techniques you need to play both!

What age is best to start piano or keyboard lessons?

The best age to start piano or keyboard lessons can vary depending on the individual. However, most children are ready to start around the age of 5 or 6. It's important to consider their attention span, motor skills, and ability to follow instructions. Adults can start at any age and benefit from learning to play the piano or keyboard, you're never too old to learn!
