Chatswood Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

Do your piano teachers come to Chatswood? And on which days of the week?

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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Chatswood piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Chatswood 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 Chatswood piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 Chatswood 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 1 on 1? Why not Chatswood group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring 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 individual lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group tutoring.
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.
What are your Chatswood piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Chatswood 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.
Normally students take piano courses 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 myself believe 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 history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest 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 day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then give suggestions on how to develop or impart new concepts 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 following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out 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 bit by bit and precisely is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another small section they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the teacher 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 coaches can put right bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused 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 develop many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
