This must be a stupid question to all those very exprienced pianists here. Nevertheless I ask it. My musical background is such, that I started to play piano and take lessons again six years ago, after not having played for many years. I was already a pensioner then. I have always been content with my lessons, at a local music school, where lessons always last 30 minutes. A few moths ago, my teacher became a "partial pensioner", and was allowed to give less lessons. I have a new (very young) teacher therefore now. This new teacher seems to inspires me - contrary to my expectation - much more than my former teacher, with whom I was content. My level is such that I play at the moment Haydn sonatas, the "not very difficult" Chopin pieces (if such a thing exists at all), the Inventions and Sinfonias by Bach and, at my own request, Scott Joplin, whom my new teacher also takes quite seriously. So I consider myself to be an intermediate / slightly advanced player. I study piano one hour per day. Now, here is my question at last: I have to enroll for the new season of lessons at the music shool within the next two weeks, and of course I will continue my lessons. BUT would it be useful (improve my playing) if I took lessons every week instead of ever two weeks? There are so many experienced players (and maybe also teachers) here, that I hope to get some practical advice about this. Of course I will also consult my teacher before I decide! Is there anybody here who is an intermediate / slightly advanced pianist who has experience with the most effective frequency of lessons? Thanks for reading this.
