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

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 Currawong Beach 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 Currawong Beach 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 Currawong Beach group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring 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 one on one lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group lessons.
Am I too old to start learning to play piano?
NO! There is no set age to start 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 Currawong Beach piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Currawong Beach 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.
Usually students take piano lessons 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 approach to response to this enquiry 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 frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give ideas on how to develop or impart new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 rehearse is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections 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 minor section bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the teacher 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 trainers can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their teacher. 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 exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
