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

How old should my child be to begin piano lessons?
Children as young as five can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Kings Langley piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Kings Langley piano teachers 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Kings Langley group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 faster than students learning in group classes.
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.
What are your Kings Langley piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Kings Langley piano teachers work with our students.
Our piano teachers:
- highly experienced in teaching all ages and skill levels
- are experienced in playing the piano themselves
- have undergone a NSW Government certified “Working with children” police check
- are very friendly and patient to make students comfortable with learning at their own pace.
Normally students take piano courses once a week.
However 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 myself believe the best way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then give suggestions on how to develop or teach new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor section they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us understand how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that train is absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
