Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.

How old should my child be to begin piano lessons?
Children as young as five can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Hurlstone Park 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 Hurlstone Park 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 Hurlstone Park group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One piano lessons 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 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 Hurlstone Park piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Hurlstone Park 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.
Normally 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 way to answer this question 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 major composers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary trainers were often 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 Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then provide recommendations on how to improve or impart new ideas 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 succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and work 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 gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to aid us understand how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen 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 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard 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 day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples quicker 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 undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. 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 just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle 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 seriously, 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 comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
