Chipping Norton Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Chipping Norton traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Chipping Norton? 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 homes without a piano.
When do you offer Chipping Norton piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Chipping Norton 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 Chipping Norton piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Chipping Norton 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 Chipping Norton group piano classes?
Group piano lessons 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 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.

Typically 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 personally believe the best way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer 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 training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately 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 teacher do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 rehearse is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen 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 grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having 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 practice is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will always be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, 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 honestly. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get 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 pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
