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 Pleasure Point piano class?

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 Pleasure Point 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 Pleasure Point piano trainers 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 Pleasure Point 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 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 lessons.
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.
What are your Pleasure Point piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Pleasure Point piano teachers work with our students.
Our piano teachers:
- highly experienced in teaching all ages and skill levels
- are experienced in playing the piano themselves
- have undergone a NSW Government certified “Working with children” police check
- are very friendly and patient to make students comfortable with learning at their own pace.
Typically students take piano courses once a week.
However 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 answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary tutors were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training 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 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 rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher 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 practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to eradicate 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 segment gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small section they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to assist us realise how tough that is. How long should practice 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 concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults 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 happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can trace a lesson 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.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
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 whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
