Piano Teacher Carlingford – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Carlingford traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Carlingford? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Carlingford piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Carlingford 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 Carlingford 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 Carlingford 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Carlingford group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot faster 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.

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 myself believe the best way 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 frequently find that key writers and pianists came from a musical background and their first coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to develop or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re asking 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 so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and precisely is often a condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small section they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the teacher 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 tutors can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will always be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
