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 West 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Denistone West 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 West group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring 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 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.

Normally students take piano courses once a week.
But 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 consider the best way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to get better or teach 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 train 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 important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that type 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 coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse 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 grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that train is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will always be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
