Beginner

...assumes you have never heard of a piano before. You don't know the notes, the beats, how to read music, nothing. The key to the beginners lessons is to ask a lot of questions. Since it's a beginning lesson, all questions are game. No questions are dumb.
 
 

Intermediate

...geared toward people who haven't had much, if any, formal training, but have played songs on the piano well enough to impress at least a couple friends. You don't have to be good at reading music or knowledgable about music theory, but again - ask questions!
 
 

Advanced

...have been playing for a while and are mostly looking for a new influence, some accountability, and to fill in some of the gaps they missed along the way. An experienced student is known by most of their friends as a "pianist" and has other musician friends too.
