Londonderry 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 Londonderry traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Londonderry? 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 Londonderry piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Londonderry 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 Londonderry piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Londonderry 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 1 on 1? Why not Londonderry 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 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 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.

Our piano teachers:
- highly experienced in teaching all ages and skill levels
- are experienced in playing the piano themselves
- have undergone a NSW Government certified “Working with children” police check
- are very friendly and patient to make students comfortable with learning at their own pace.
Typically 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 believe the best approach to answer 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 past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary tutors were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to develop or impart new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important 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 practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 train is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section bit by bit and accurately is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to help us know how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and improper pose. 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 effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday 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 goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid 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 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always 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 full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
