Barden Ridge Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Barden Ridge traffic to get to your piano classes.

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

Please enquire 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 great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Barden Ridge piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Barden Ridge 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 Barden Ridge 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Barden Ridge piano teachers 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 Barden Ridge group  piano classes?

Group piano classes 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 individual lessons progress a lot quicker 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 Barden Ridge piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Barden Ridge 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.

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 believe the best way to answer this question 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 everyday basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest trainers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide suggestions on how to improve or impart new concepts to improve 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 continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. 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 sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is tough.

Why Practicing is Difficult

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

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and accurately is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different small section they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to assist us realise how challenging 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 be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors 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 coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a determined way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one specific piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a profession

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be capable to even study on your own!

A piano trainer will always be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, however 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 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.

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

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
