Banksia 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 Banksia traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Banksia? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Banksia piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Banksia 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 Banksia piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Banksia 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 Banksia group piano classes?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 private 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 Banksia piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Banksia 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 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 consider the best way to answer 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 key writers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then provide ideas on how to get better or impart new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 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 accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact 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 elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that kind of practice 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 teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that train is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a business
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano coach will always be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four 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 satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
