Austinmer 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 Austinmer traffic to get to your piano classes.

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

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

When do you offer Austinmer piano lessons?

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

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 one on one lessons progress a lot faster 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.

What are your Austinmer piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Austinmer 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 lessons 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 personally think the best way to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.

Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary tutors were frequently 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide ideas on how to improve or impart 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 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 hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.

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 train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and precisely is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point a different minor segment they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to aid us know how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen 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 fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors anticipate that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer 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 rectify bad habits and incorrect pose. 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 maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that train is absolutely precious.

Realistically

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

Objectives 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 career

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even study on your own!

A piano coach will at all times be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place often, however 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 at all times the finest.

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 beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
