How long will it take to learn to play?
Frequently Asked Questions
It depends on a number of factors.
Firstly, what music you want to learn to play and what level you would like to achieve. For example, some students want to learn Fur Elise by Beethoven. This grade 3-4 standard piece will take longer in comparison to learning an easy pop music song.
It also depends on how often you have lessons, the amount of practice time you put in and each individual’s rate of learning. But generally speaking for a beginner to play competently they would have a lesson for 30-60 mins a week on a regular basis and practice 3-4 times a week, each time for around 10-30. You also have to consider the difficulty of the music you are learning, hence the learner will achieve a reasonable standard to play a grade1-3 music within 2 years of learning approximately.
