Colebee Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Colebee traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Colebee? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.
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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Colebee piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Colebee 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 Colebee piano teachers 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Colebee 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 Colebee group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 faster 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.

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 myself believe the best approach 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 history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical family 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 likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to get better or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eradicate 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 bit by bit and precisely is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another small section they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice 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 difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is completely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will always be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
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 full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
