Piano Teacher Canley Vale – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Canley Vale traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Canley Vale? 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Canley Vale piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Canley Vale 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 Canley Vale 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 Canley Vale 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 Canley Vale group piano classes?
Group piano classes 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 quicker than students learning in group classes.
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.

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 courses once a week.
However 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 believe 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 history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that main composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to develop or teach new concepts to improve the young 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 rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice 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 could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Challenging
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 diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate 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 trainer is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher 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 teacher. 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 define some collective ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional 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 honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
