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

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Chifley piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Chifley 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 five can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Chifley 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Chifley 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 Chifley group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano classes 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 faster than students learning in group tutoring.
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 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 think the best way 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 history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical family and their primary trainers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to get better or impart 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 train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. 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 again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know 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 elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that style of rehearse 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 tutor leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money 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 indeed varies on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
