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

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 Killarney Heights piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 Killarney Heights 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 Killarney Heights group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 1 on 1 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.

Our piano teachers:

- are very friendly and patient to make students comfortable with learning at their own pace.
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 approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical family 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 everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give recommendations on how to get better or impart new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections 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 small section gradually and accurately is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different small segment they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us realise how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased 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 distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the teacher 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 tutors can put right bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student having 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 completely priceless.
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 deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
