What minimum age is required to begin piano lessons?

There is no one recommended age as all children are different. 
As soon as the child knows Right and Left hands, can count up to 10, concentrate for 10 -15 min and likes listening to any music, we consider him/her ready.
Starting between 3 y.o. and 6 y.o would be ideal.

Is it a disadvantage to start piano studies later?

No. Starting Music studies at any stage of your life is highly beneficial for your brain, fine motor skills, amazingly improve memory - particularly verbal memory, and build good habits like focus and perseverance, diligence and creativity. 
Children who had a few years of piano study under their belts could remember twenty per cent more vocabulary words than their peers! 

Is parental involvement essential for early learners?

Yes, parents are expected and encouraged to be on top of the work happening in the class and at home.
Please, read the relevant paragraph of the Policy.

Are you a strict or kind teacher?

I would like to quote Mary Poppins:
"I am kind, but extremely firm!"
