Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?
We know pianos can be out of people’s budgets, that is why a cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Old Toongabbie piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.
Weekend lessons are also readily available, please enquire for more information.
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 Old Toongabbie piano teachers 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 Old Toongabbie 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 Old Toongabbie group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano tutoring 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 begin 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 Old Toongabbie piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Old Toongabbie 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.
Typically 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 myself consider the best way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary teachers 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 Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give recommendations on how to improve or explain new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 remove all distractions 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 small segment bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us realise how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. 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 exciting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and improper posture. 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 possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that train is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Objectives 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 indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your whole 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!
