Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.

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 Stanwell Tops 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Stanwell Tops 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Stanwell Tops group piano lessons?
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 individual 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.

Only the best Stanwell Tops 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.
Normally students take piano lessons 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 myself think the best approach to answer 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 everyday basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide suggestions on how to get better or impart new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different minor segment they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that train is absolutely priceless.
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 really varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur 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 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 delight out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
