On the subject title, I don't think any of us could judge a child. We're not supposed to. On the issue at hand: Talk to the parents. Especially if you can't handle her.

If you feel you need structure I think exercises are fine. I'm completely the opposite, routines are not for me. I do (and invent) exercises sometimes when I feel the are needed, but mostly just study music. And while my technique is still far from e

I have a 225 and I suspect my room may be smaller than yours. It has a 9' ceiling and is carpeted. I usually keep the lid up. I don't find it to be overpowering.

I never did any technical exercises or scales in my childhood piano lessons. Look at how I play (link to my videos below). I play just fine. I'm not saying you can't get anything from them, but they aren't necessary. Every time you play piano y

You should be able to tell right away if these are the growing brackets. The capstans will be almost all the way out, hammer tails may be rubbing on the wippen rail, let off buttons may have bottomed out and are off center with the jack toes. At an

From the ones I have heard some were really good, but it is true that when they have to select 80 from this lot, many will be quite mediocre. But what else would be expected? These are young people and hardly can be compared to some mature pianists.

10-20 min a day of scales, chords, arpeggios and Czerny would be great if you want to get to the point where you have access to a lot of different repertoire and don't have to spend too much time drilling technical sections in order to learn pieces.
