Bass Hill Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Bass Hill? 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 Bass Hill piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Bass Hill 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 Bass Hill 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 Bass Hill 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 1 on 1? Why not Bass Hill 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 lessons 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 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 Bass Hill piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Bass Hill 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.

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 myself think 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 composers and pianists came from a musical family and their primary trainers were often 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 Rehearsal is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide recommendations on how to develop or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Practice with the student of course!

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

Why Practicing is Challenging

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

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to trace another minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to aid us know how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

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

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely precious.

Realistically

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 determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common goals.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a career

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!

A piano coach will continually be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.

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