Como Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Como traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Como? And on which days of the week?
Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.
Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?
We know pianos can be out of people’s budgets, that is why a cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Como piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Como 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 Como 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 Como 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 Como group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 one on one lessons progress a lot faster 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.

Our piano teachers:
- highly experienced in teaching all ages and skill levels

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 answer 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 past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first tutors 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 Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then provide ideas on how to develop or explain new ideas 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 practice for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens 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 Challenging
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 sort out on parts 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 condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is undeniably precious.
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 determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can find 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 correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music principle 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
