Bidwill Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Bidwill traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Bidwill? 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 Bidwill piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Bidwill 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 Bidwill piano teachers 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 Bidwill 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 Bidwill group piano classes?
Group piano tutoring 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 faster than students learning in group classes.
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 Bidwill piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Bidwill 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.
On the other hand 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 approach to answer this enquiry 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 key composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to develop or teach new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
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 eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small section they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult 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 afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that train is undeniably precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be supportive and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover 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.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
