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 Holsworthy 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Holsworthy piano tutors 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 Holsworthy group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 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.

On the other hand 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 think 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 frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical background and their primary trainers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to develop or impart new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments 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 small section slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another small segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how tough that is. How long should train 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 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, 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 teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be ready to lend a hand and create 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 else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this really 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 4 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 satisfaction 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!
