Rooty Hill Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Rooty Hill traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Rooty Hill? 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 perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Rooty Hill piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Rooty Hill 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 Rooty Hill 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Rooty Hill 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 Rooty Hill group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 quicker than students learning in group lessons.
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:

Typically 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 myself think 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 olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest tutors 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 Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to develop or teach 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 train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 train is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different minor segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to help us understand how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be glad 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 effectively for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach 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 grown-up would have a tough time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue 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 right or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get 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 complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
