Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

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

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Ku-Ring-Gai Chase piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.

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 Ku-Ring-Gai Chase 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 Ku-Ring-Gai Chase 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 Ku-Ring-Gai Chase 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 one on one lessons progress a lot faster 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.

Typically students take piano lessons once a week.
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 personally think the best approach to response to this enquiry 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 day-to-day basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest teachers were frequently 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 Training 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 trainer would then give ideas on how to develop or teach new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes 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 rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and precisely is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another minor section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct 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 Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, 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, however 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 at all times the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
