Glen Alpine Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Glen Alpine traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Glen Alpine? 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Glen Alpine piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Glen Alpine 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 Glen Alpine 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Glen Alpine 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 Glen Alpine group piano lessons?
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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot quicker 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.

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

Typically students take piano classes 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 approach to response to 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 everyday basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give ideas on how to get better or explain new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise 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 elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely invaluable.
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 often to take lessons really depends on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano coach will continually be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover 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.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place often, but 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 top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
