Airds 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 Airds traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Airds? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Airds piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Airds 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 Airds 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 Airds 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 Airds 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 private lessons progress a lot quicker 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.

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

Typically students take piano lessons 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 myself consider the best way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main 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 likely gave them day-to-day 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 teacher would then give suggestions on how to develop or explain 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 practice 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 rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher 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 practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 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 inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and accurately is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another small section they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover 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 correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
