Belfield 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 Belfield traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Belfield? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Belfield piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Belfield 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 Belfield piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Belfield 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 Belfield group piano classes?
Group piano classes 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 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
- are experienced in playing the piano themselves

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 believe the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical background and their first teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then give suggestions on how to get better or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer 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 could 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 eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor section they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that kind 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 train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and improper 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 effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student having 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 rehearse is undeniably invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Goals 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 goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will always be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a 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 accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
