Children as young as 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our North Turramurra 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our North Turramurra 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 North Turramurra group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 private 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 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.

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 personally believe the best way 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 the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical family and their primary coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide ideas on how to improve or teach new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections 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 minor segment gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different small segment they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to aid us understand how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing 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 coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can find a tutorial 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.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really 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 another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You become 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 whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
