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 five can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Bardwell Valley piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 Bardwell Valley 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 Bardwell Valley group piano classes?
Group piano lessons 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 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.

Our piano teachers:

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 way to answer 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical family 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 day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to develop or teach new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. 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 practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 rehearse is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and accurately is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more small section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to assist us realise how tough 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 focus well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. 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 occurs when the tutor 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 teachers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that practice 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 determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- 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 daily indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
