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 Dolls Point piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Dolls Point 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 1 on 1? Why not Dolls Point group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano lessons 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 classes.
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.

Normally 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 way to answer 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their first tutors were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to develop or teach new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and accurately is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more minor section they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us know how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can rectify bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student taking 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 rehearse is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will always be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three 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 best.
You become 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 entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
