Abbotsford Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Abbotsford traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Abbotsford? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?
We know pianos can be out of people’s budgets, that is why a budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Abbotsford piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Abbotsford piano teachers are very flexible and will always try to accommodate the time that suits you best.
Weekend lessons are also readily available, please enquire for more information.
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 Abbotsford piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Abbotsford piano tutors 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 Abbotsford group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 lessons.
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.

Our piano teachers:

Usually students take piano classes 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 myself consider the best way 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 olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to improve or teach 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 practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more minor section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to help us realise how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 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 anticipate that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a career
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will always be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of four 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 honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
