Our Lane Cove West 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 Lane Cove West 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 Lane Cove West 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 private lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group lessons.
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.

Normally students take piano classes 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 believe the best approach 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 frequently find that major composers and pianists came from a musical background and their first tutors 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 Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations 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 rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher 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 turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more small section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well 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 kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher 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 put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult 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 allow lessons everyday, 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 trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can trace a lesson 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.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
