Q & A
Q. Why you recommend ear training and theory to combine with piano lesson?
A. In order to play the piano easily, we need some elements. For example, knowledge of the notes, recognition of pitch, rhythm, beat, tone, tempo, harmony, music notations, music terminology, memory and so on.
I recommend you to take the ear training and theory session at each piano lesson. It is possible to combine: 50 minutes piano lesson + 10 minutes ear training and theory lesson. For advanced pupils: 1 hour piano lesson + 30 minutes complete ear training and solfege(in French, general music training, including pitch, harmony, rhythm, beat, history of music). At my music university, I had 4 hours solfege, 2 hours harmony, 2 hours history of music, 2 hours theory and 1 hour piano lessons per week(piano was my major). So, you see, how important the solfege is.
