Oakville 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 Oakville traffic to get to your piano class.

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

Please call 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 ok for beginners.

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.

When do you offer Oakville piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Oakville 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 Oakville piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Oakville 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 Oakville group  piano classes?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano lessons ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.

In personal experience, piano students learning in private 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 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.

What are your Oakville piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Oakville 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.

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 myself consider 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 frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical background and their primary coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to develop or teach new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Tough

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more small section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us understand how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs 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 coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared goals.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!

A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place often, 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 get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
