Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Lilli Pilli piano class?

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 Lilli Pilli piano tutors 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Lilli Pilli piano tutors 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 Lilli Pilli group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano tutoring ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in one on one lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group tutoring.
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 Lilli Pilli piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Lilli Pilli 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.
On the other hand 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 think the best approach to response to 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 past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to improve or impart 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 train in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more minor section they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us realise how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really varies on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, 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 child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You become 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 whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
