Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

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

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 Lane Cove piano tutors are experienced in tutoring young children who are complete beginners, and have all the patience and personality needed to encourage your child and give them best start in their piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Lane Cove 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 Lane Cove group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual piano classes ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in private lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group lessons.
Am I too old to start learning to play piano?
NO! There is no set age to begin 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:
- 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 lessons 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 consider the best approach 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 history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to get better or impart new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section gradually and precisely is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors 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 fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.
Goals 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 business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
