Annandale Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

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 Annandale traffic to get to your piano classes.

Do your piano teachers come to Annandale? And on which days of the week?

Please call 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 ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Annandale piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Annandale 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 Annandale piano teachers 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 Annandale piano trainers 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 Annandale 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 tutoring 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 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 Annandale piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Annandale 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 courses 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 consider the best approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.

Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary trainers 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to get better 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 rehearse in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

Why Practicing is Difficult

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more small segment they are not contented with and do it again.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us realise how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors expect that type 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 teacher is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can put right bad habits and incorrect pose. 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 maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples faster 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 train is completely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared goals.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one specific piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a job

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even study on your own!

A piano teacher will continually be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, 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 finest.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
