Piano Teacher Glenwood – 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 Glenwood traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Glenwood? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Glenwood piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Glenwood 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 Glenwood 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Glenwood 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 Glenwood group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring 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 faster than students learning in group classes.
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:

Normally students take piano courses 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 personally consider the best approach to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary 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 everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to get better or explain new ideas to improve the new 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 practice for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another small section they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, 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 trainer just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a career
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can trace a lesson 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.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
