Wheeler Heights Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Wheeler Heights traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Wheeler Heights? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Wheeler Heights piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Wheeler Heights 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 Wheeler Heights 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Wheeler Heights 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 1 on 1? Why not Wheeler Heights 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 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.

Our piano teachers:
- highly experienced in teaching all ages and skill levels

Usually 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 think the best way to answer 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 daily basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest teachers were frequently 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 Rehearsal 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 provide suggestions on how to improve or teach new ideas to develop the young 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 train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the result. 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 rehearse is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different small segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us realise how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that type 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 tutor 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 tutors can put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You become 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 entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
