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

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 Werrington Downs 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Werrington Downs 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Werrington Downs group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 individual 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.

Our piano teachers:

Typically students take piano courses 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 consider the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical family 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 daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to get better or teach new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to assist us understand how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the trainer 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 incorrect pose. 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 full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress 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 train is absolutely 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 frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
