Kirrawee 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 Kirrawee traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Kirrawee? 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 cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Kirrawee piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kirrawee 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 Kirrawee piano teachers 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 Kirrawee piano tutors 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 Kirrawee 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 lessons ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.
In personal experience, piano students learning in individual 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.

Normally 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 consider the best approach to response to 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 olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest coaches 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 Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give recommendations on how to improve or explain new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. 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 rehearse this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section gradually and accurately is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another small section they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder 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 expect that type of rehearse 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 coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples sooner 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 train is completely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can discover a lesson 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.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
