Eagle Vale 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 Eagle Vale traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Eagle Vale? 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Eagle Vale piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Eagle Vale 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 Eagle Vale 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 Eagle Vale 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 Eagle Vale group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 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.
What are your Eagle Vale piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Eagle Vale 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.
Usually students take piano courses once a week.
On the other hand 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 think the best way to answer this question 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 day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that major writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor 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 train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more small segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting 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 teachers can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared ambitions.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
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 whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
