Chiswick Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Chiswick traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Chiswick? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Chiswick piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Chiswick 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 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Chiswick 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 Chiswick 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 Chiswick group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 one on one 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.

Only the best Chiswick piano teachers work with our students.
Our piano teachers:
- highly experienced in teaching all ages and skill levels

Typically students take piano lessons once a week.
On the other hand 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 think the best way to response to this question 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 everyday basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest tutors were often 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then give ideas on how to improve or impart new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches 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 in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train 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 could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to assist us understand how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse 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 difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, 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 teacher just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will always be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music concept 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 satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
