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 Padstow Heights 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 Padstow Heights piano teachers 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 Padstow Heights group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 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 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.

Typically students take piano lessons 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 lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then provide ideas on how to get better 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 train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly 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 train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 practice is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and precisely is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point another minor segment they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to aid us know how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be glad 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 well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer 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 trainers can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
