Piano Teacher Leumeah – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Leumeah traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Leumeah? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Leumeah piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Leumeah 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 Leumeah piano teachers 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 Leumeah 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 Leumeah group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 1 on 1 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 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.

Only the best Leumeah 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 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 personally consider 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 the past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that major writers 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 possibly gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to improve 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 train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 remove all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section gradually and accurately is often a condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small segment they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise 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 elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs 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 pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough 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 coach just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a career
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 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 top.
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 emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
