Our Gregory Hills 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Gregory Hills 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 Gregory Hills group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 one on one 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!

Usually 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 personally think the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher 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 succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. 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 teacher do now? Train 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 may still be the outcome. 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 practice is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely 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 rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples earlier 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 precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will always be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
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 whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
