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 Berkshire Park piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Berkshire Park piano teachers 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 Berkshire Park 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 private 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:

Usually students take piano courses 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 myself believe the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest 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 daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide ideas on how to develop or impart new ideas to develop the new 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 practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section gradually and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us realise how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that style 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 teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train 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 challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that train is completely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur often, 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 at all times the finest.
You become 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 whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
