Children as young as five can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our St Helens Park 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 St Helens Park 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 St Helens Park 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 classes 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 quicker than students learning in group classes.
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.

Usually 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 myself believe the best approach to response to this question 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 daily basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical family 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 possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to improve or explain new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Challenging
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 work on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers 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 tutor 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 teachers can correct bad habits and improper posture. 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 success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. 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 concept 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
