Agnes Banks Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Agnes Banks traffic to get to your piano classes.

Do your piano teachers come to Agnes Banks? 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 great for beginners.

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.

When do you offer Agnes Banks piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Agnes Banks 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 Agnes Banks 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 Agnes Banks 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 Agnes Banks 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 classes ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.

In personal experience, piano students learning in individual 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.

What are your Agnes Banks piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Agnes Banks 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 classes 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 believe the best way to response to this enquiry 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 daily basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their first teachers were often 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 Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons should 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 ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. 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 rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.

Why Practicing is Challenging

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors anticipate that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the teacher is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday 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 exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some shared ambitions.

Goals 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 profession

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!

A piano trainer will at all times be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
