Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?
We know pianos can be out of people’s budgets, that is why a budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Russell Lea piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Russell Lea piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.
Weekend lessons are also readily available, please enquire for more information.
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 Russell Lea piano teachers 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Russell Lea 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 Russell Lea group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons 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 private 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 consider the best approach 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 everyday basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their first coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions 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 recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. 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 train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the result. 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 practice is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more minor segment they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us understand how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that kind 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 coach is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice 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 grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer 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 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.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
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 full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
