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

Do your piano teachers come to Fiddletown? 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Fiddletown piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Fiddletown 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 Fiddletown piano teachers 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Fiddletown 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Fiddletown group piano lessons?
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 lessons.
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.

Normally 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 consider the best way to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical background and their first trainers were often 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 Training 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 recommendations on how to get better or explain new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 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 inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different small segment they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us know how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad 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 effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain 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 daily indeed aren’t needed. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will at all times be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a lecture 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.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
