Lilyfield Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Lilyfield traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Lilyfield? And on which days of the week?
Please call for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.
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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Lilyfield piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Lilyfield 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 Lilyfield piano teachers 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Lilyfield piano trainers 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 Lilyfield group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 one on one lessons progress a lot faster 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.

Our piano teachers:
- highly experienced in teaching all ages and skill levels
- are experienced in playing the piano themselves

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 believe the best approach 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 history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give ideas on how to get better or impart new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove 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 piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and accurately is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student having 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 rehearse is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily 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. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will continually be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music theory 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 honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
