Children as young as 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our South Hurstville piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our South Hurstville 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 South Hurstville group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 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 South Hurstville piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best South Hurstville 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.
Usually students take piano classes 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 personally consider 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 the olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to develop or impart new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training 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 recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. 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 rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts 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 small segment gradually and accurately is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more small section they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us realise how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that type of train 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 teacher 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 improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a career
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano coach will always be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
