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 Mount Pritchard piano teachers 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Mount Pritchard 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 1 on 1? Why not Mount Pritchard group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 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 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:

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 personally think the best way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary trainers were frequently 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 Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to improve or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all distractions 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 presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and correctly is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us understand how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased 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 effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor 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 put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that train is absolutely precious.
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 often to take lessons really varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a career
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
