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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer St Ives Chase piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our St Ives Chase piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.

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 St Ives Chase piano teachers 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 St Ives Chase 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 1 on 1? Why not St Ives Chase 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 individual 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 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.

Only the best St Ives Chase piano teachers work with our students.
Our piano teachers:
- highly experienced in teaching all ages and skill levels

- are very friendly and patient to make students comfortable with learning at their own pace.
Typically students take piano courses once a week.
On the other hand 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 question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to improve or teach new concepts to develop 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 succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
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 work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and precisely is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to aid us realise how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that type 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 coach is sitting there. You have the coach 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 improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, 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 coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline 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 all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, but 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 get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
