Children as young as 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Grays Point piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 Grays Point piano trainers 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 Grays Point 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 lessons 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 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.

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 think the best approach 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 past 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 earliest 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 daily lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to get better 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 rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover 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 train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 sort out 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 minor segment gradually and accurately is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more minor segment they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor 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 tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain 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, clearly lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t happen frequently, but 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 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 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 happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
