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 Denistone East piano teachers 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Denistone East 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 Denistone East group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 tutoring.
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.

Typically students take piano lessons 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 believe the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical background and their primary coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then provide ideas on how to get better or explain new concepts to develop the new 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 teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. 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 train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking 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 so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us realise how challenging 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 be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the teacher is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard 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 develop many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can find a lecture 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 want to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
