Children as young as 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our South Granville 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our South Granville 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 South Granville group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 private lessons progress a lot quicker 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.

Normally 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 consider the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that major composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to improve or teach new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately 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 tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. 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 sadly even if the student DID rehearse 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 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 start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping 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 done making things easier here, but the point is to assist us understand how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the teacher 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 teachers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
