Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Great Mackerel Beach piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.

How old should my child be to begin piano lessons?
Children as young as 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Great Mackerel Beach piano tutors are experienced in teaching young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to engage your child and give them best start in their piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Great Mackerel Beach piano trainers are qualified to teach all styles of music, whether you’re interested in popular, contemporary, classical, jazz, musical theatre or even Nintendocore (yes, this is an actual genre). However, we encourage our students to explore all genres to show them just how interesting the piano can be.
Why enrol my child in 1 on 1? Why not Great Mackerel Beach group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano lessons ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group lessons.
Am I too old to start learning to play piano?
NO! There is no set age to start learning a musical instrument, and the best time to start is right this moment – ie Now!
Learn to play your favourite songs, learn how to read music, learn theory, or just about anything you’d like to know about the piano.
Playing the piano is a fun and great way to exercise your creative abilities so don’t just dream about it, start learning.

Our piano teachers:

Normally students take piano classes once a week.
But if you just give me a minute of your time, I’ll tell you why that’s often not the best way to go.
I personally think the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their first coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then give ideas on how to develop or impart new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the teacher is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
