Our Piano Lessons

Piano lessons are one of the most popular choices for lessons at the Cantabile School of Music. Many of our students love learning the piano since it is such a versatile instrument. This makes learning the piano a great way to start off your musical journey, especially if you are still discovering music or have never tried learning a musical instrument before.

What age can I start learning piano?

Children as young as 5 years of old can start to begin learning the piano. Some children can start learning younger but this may depend on their physical capabilities, as well as their attention and awareness. As the piano can be physically less demanding compared to other instruments in the initial stages, many young children may choose the piano to begin learning music.

What do you learn in our Piano Lessons?

Beginner Students

For many of our beginner piano students, the recommended curriculum our teachers use is the Piano Adventures series by Faber. It is the teaching method of choice at leading university programs and music studios around the world, as it presents a comprehensive approach to learning the piano in an enjoyable and engaging way.

Our piano lessons will always incorporate the following, tailored to your level and stage in learning:

  • Repertoire and music
  • Proper pedagogy and technique on your instrument
  • Musicianship and aural skills
  • Music theory and general knowledge

Do I need to have a piano at home?

It is ideal if you do have a piano at home, but you can start lessons with our piano teachers  by using an electric keyboard to practice on. Most of our students rent or buy small electric keyboards practice on at home. We recommend a keyboard that has regular sized keys and a touch sensitive response. A touch sensitive keyboard means if you press a key harder it will play louder and if you press a key softer it will play quieter.

The piano is one of the best instruments to start your musical journey for you or your child. If you’d like to learn how to play piano, chat to us about how you can begin having piano lessons with us today!
