Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer West Hoxton piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our West Hoxton piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.

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 West Hoxton piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 West Hoxton 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 West Hoxton group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 1 on 1 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.

Normally students take piano lessons 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 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 past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest tutors 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 Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to improve 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 rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. 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 sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts 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 small segment bit by bit and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different small segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us know how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the coach 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 stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. 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 diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur frequently, but 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are always 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 happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
