Children as young as 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Bilgola Plateau 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Bilgola Plateau 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 1 on 1? Why not Bilgola Plateau group piano classes?
Group piano classes 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 one on one lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group lessons.
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:

Normally students take piano classes 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 believe the best approach to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical family 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 probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to improve or teach new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 work on segments of music that the student cannot until now 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 requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more minor section they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and incorrect 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 maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
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, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always 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 full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
