Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Padstow Heights piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Padstow Heights 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 Padstow Heights 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 Padstow Heights 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 Padstow Heights group piano classes?
Group piano lessons 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 individual 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.
What are your Padstow Heights piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Padstow Heights 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.
Typically 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 think the best way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Rehearsal 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 get better or teach 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 rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor section they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer 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 stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. 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 easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that practice 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 deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will always be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You become 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 entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
