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

Usually students take piano classes 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 approach to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical family and their primary coaches were frequently 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 Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then provide ideas on how to get better or impart new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. 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 train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments 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 slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point another small segment they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to help us realise how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen frequently, but 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 always the finest.
You get 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 entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
