Banksmeadow Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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

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

Please touch base 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 ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Banksmeadow piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Banksmeadow 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 five can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.

Our Banksmeadow piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Banksmeadow 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 Banksmeadow group  piano classes?

Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 quicker 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 Banksmeadow piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Banksmeadow 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.

Usually students take piano lessons once a week.

However 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 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 frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to develop or impart new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!

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

Why Practicing is Tough

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

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace one more minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m done making things easier here, but the fact is to help us know how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

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

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably invaluable.

Realistically

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

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one specific piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a profession

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

A piano teacher will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, 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 child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
