Children as young as 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Castle Cove 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 Castle Cove piano tutors 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 Castle Cove group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 tutoring.
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.

Typically students take piano classes 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 personally think the best way to response to 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 past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience 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 probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to develop or impart new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may 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 rehearse is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how hard 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 be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely 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 practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress 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 rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
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 indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen often, 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 seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
