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

Do your piano teachers come to Laughtondale? 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 homes without a piano.
When do you offer Laughtondale piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Laughtondale 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 Laughtondale piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Laughtondale 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 Laughtondale group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 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.

Usually students take piano lessons 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 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 the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary coaches were often 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 Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop 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 practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. 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 practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may 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 practice is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to aid us realise how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased 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 fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that style 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 trainer is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy 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 teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.
Ambitions 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 career
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of 4 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 seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction 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 immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
