Children as young as 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Merrylands West piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Merrylands West 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 1 on 1? Why not Merrylands West group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 quicker 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.

Normally students take piano classes 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 think the best way to response to 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 day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their first coaches were frequently 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 Rehearsal 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 provide ideas on how to develop or explain 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 practice for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 rehearse is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments 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 segment bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor section they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to aid us know how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that kind 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 tutor is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday 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 ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a career
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always 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 trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You get 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 complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
