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

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 Hassall Grove 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 Hassall Grove 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 Hassall Grove group piano classes?
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 private 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 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 personally consider the best approach 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 history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to get better or impart new ideas to develop 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 rehearse for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly 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 requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to remove all diversions 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 inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another minor section they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the trainer 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 teachers can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student having 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 rehearse is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, 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 take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
