Ashfield Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Ashfield? 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Ashfield piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Ashfield 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 Ashfield piano tutors 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 Ashfield piano tutors 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 Ashfield group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 faster 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 Ashfield piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Ashfield 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.

Typically students take piano courses 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 consider the best approach 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 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 family 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give recommendations on how to improve or explain new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

Why Practicing is Hard

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

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and correctly is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different minor section they are not happy with and do it again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to aid us understand how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers anticipate that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having 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 practice is undeniably invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money 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 indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one specific 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 objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!

A piano tutor will at all times be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure 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!
