Cheltenham Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Cheltenham traffic to get to your piano class.

Do your piano teachers come to Cheltenham? And on which days of the week?

Please enquire for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.

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 homes without a piano.

When do you offer Cheltenham piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Cheltenham 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 Cheltenham piano tutors 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 Cheltenham 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 Cheltenham group  piano lessons?

Group piano tutoring 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 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.

What are your Cheltenham piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Cheltenham 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.

Normally students take piano classes 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 personally consider the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical background and their first 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 day-to-day lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to get better or impart new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse 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.

Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.

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 train 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 beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and accurately is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more minor section they are not happy with and do it again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to help us know how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train 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 fixated way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having 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 rehearse is completely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared goals.

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a profession

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!

A piano coach will always be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can find a lesson 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.

However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
