Our Centennial Park 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 Centennial Park group piano lessons?
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 quicker than students learning in group lessons.

NO! There is no set age to begin learning a musical instrument, and the best time to start is right this moment – ie Now!

Our piano teachers:

- are very friendly and patient to make students comfortable with learning at their own pace.
Usually 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 myself think the best way to response to 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 past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical background and their first coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to improve or explain new ideas to develop the young 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 teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the result. 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 remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more small segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us understand how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is undeniably invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
