Pianos Plus School - Practice Advice

Dear Parents,
Welcome to our school at Pianos Plus, Centrepoint. We now have 4 teaching centres in Dublin. Everything you need to know for the coming term is listed below if you have any questions please talk to your child’s teacher.

At your first lesson you will be given a list of books your child will need for the year. The books can be bought in town at McCullough Pigotts on South William St. or online at or

Regular practice is the most important thing if you want to improve at the piano and just as important as your lesson. Piano will be a lot more enjoyable if you are fitting in daily practice and making progress. Part of every lesson time is given to learning to practice effectively.
Please follow these practice methods in your practice time rather than just playing through. Recommended daily practice times depending on your level/grade are below. Younger students will need to be monitored by parents to check they are putting aside time for piano practice. Please Note: It is a requirement at Pianos Plus School that all students have daily access to an acoustic piano – a digital or electronic instrument is not acceptable.

Recommended daily practice time: Beginner - 20 minutes, Grade 1/2 - 30 minutes, Grade 3 - 40 minutes, Grade 4 - 45 minutes, Grade 5/6 - 1 hour, Grade 7 - 1 hour 15 mins, Grade 8 - 1 hour 30 mins
