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 Caddens 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Caddens piano trainers 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 Caddens group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 individual 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!

Usually students take piano courses once a week.
But 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 approach to response to this question 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 often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first trainers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to improve or impart new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
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 distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and accurately is often a requirement of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. 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 often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop 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 absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly 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 diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place often, however 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 best.
You become 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 full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
