Most children start in a method book. The method will gradually move them through levels as they progress on the piano. After a few years of lessons students will choose to pursue classical music with the Royal Conservatory of Music repertoire or continue their studies with the style of music they are most interested in. This could be jazz, pop, folk, or even gospel music. This decision will be made between the parent, student, and piano teacher when the time is right for your family.
As a parent you may prefer that your child begin their lessons in the RCM and study classical music from the beginning. Our piano teachers are qualified to teach all levels and are happy to work with the piano program of your choosing.
