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 Ramsgate traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Ramsgate? 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 homes without a piano.
When do you offer Ramsgate piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Ramsgate 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 Ramsgate 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 Ramsgate 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 Ramsgate group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano tutoring 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 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.
What are your Ramsgate piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Ramsgate piano teachers work with our students.
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.
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 personally think 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 past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest tutors 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 Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas 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 suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what takes place 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 Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more small segment they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how hard 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 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that kind of train 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 trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular 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 needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire 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 really sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always 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 entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
