Palm Beach Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Palm Beach traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Palm Beach? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano classes.
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 Palm Beach piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Palm Beach 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 Palm Beach 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 Palm Beach 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 Palm Beach group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano classes 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 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.

Our piano teachers:

Usually students take piano courses 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 consider the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that main composers 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 likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to develop or impart new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse 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 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 eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small section they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty 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 grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher 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 teachers can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will continually be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur often, 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 finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
