Winston Hills 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 Winston Hills traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Winston Hills? 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 households without a piano.
When do you offer Winston Hills piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Winston Hills 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 Winston Hills 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Winston Hills 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 Winston Hills group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 private lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.
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:

Normally students take piano lessons 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 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 day-to-day basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest coaches were often 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 Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to get better or explain new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and accurately is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace a different small section they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased 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 well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that kind of train 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 coach leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can rectify bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, 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 coach just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a 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 want your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t occur often, 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
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 full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
