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

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Berowra Waters piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.
Weekend lessons are also readily available, please enquire for more information.
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 Berowra Waters 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 Berowra Waters 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 Berowra Waters group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 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.
What are your Berowra Waters piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Berowra Waters 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.
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 consider the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary teachers were frequently 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 Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then provide ideas on how to develop or impart new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the coach 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 sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 practice is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section gradually and accurately is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different minor section they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student taking 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 absolutely 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 varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem 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.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
