Bayview Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Bayview traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Bayview? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Bayview piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Bayview 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 Bayview 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 Bayview 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 Bayview group piano lessons?
Group piano classes 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 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 Bayview piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Bayview 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 courses 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 approach to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical family and their first teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to get better or impart new ideas to improve 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 practice for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way classes happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly 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 coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 practice is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section gradually and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point another minor section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to assist us understand how difficult that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers anticipate that style 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 trainer 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 trainers can put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is undeniably invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study 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 kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight 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!
