Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group tutoring.

NO! There is no set age to start learning a musical instrument, and the best time to start is right this moment – ie Now!

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 believe the best approach to answer this enquiry 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 frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to develop or explain 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 trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 train is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections 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 slowly and correctly is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different small segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that kind of rehearse 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 coach 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 pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined 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 faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is completely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will continually be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem 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.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle 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 seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
