As a piano teacher for nearly 20 years now , I would recommend lesson lengths depending on age . This is all very subjective, as I have had 5 year olds have the concentration level of a teenager. A rough guide is as follows:
3-7 years old : 30 minute lessons
7-10/11 years old: 45 minute lessons
11+: 1 hour lessons
This goes hand in hand with age increasing concentration spans, memory retention and motor skill development. As mentioned above, this is different for every person and of course we cannot dictate your financial constrictions, but these are the recommended lesson lengths for best achievements in lesson times.

All our tutors are trained to enter students in for exams- the most popular examination board is The Associated Board of Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM). Other boards include Trinity (Guildhall), The Rock School and London College of Music (LCM.) All our tutors can enter students in for exams with these boards so you needn’t worry if you have taken exams with one board and then wish to change or had one tutor and then changed.
As a company we operate a 24 hour cancellation policy on both sides- that is, student and tutor should respect that. That being said, our tutors will always try to reschedule rather than cancel any lessons you or they cannot make . If lessons are cancelled within a 24 hour period of the scheduled lesson they are subject to being charged fully.
This question is very much about the individual, how much time you have to give to lessons , if there is a goal in sight (perhaps an exam or performance) and so on. I always say at least once a week is best. Some people with young children like to have a couple of lessons a week due to children’s memory not being as strong as an adult. In holidays or just before an exam I know a lot of students like to have ‘boot camp’ like session of up to 3/4 times a week- the choice is yours!
