Birrong Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

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

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

Please enquire 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 perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Birrong piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Birrong 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 Birrong 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Birrong 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 Birrong group  piano lessons?

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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group classes.

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 Birrong piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Birrong 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.

Typically 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 think the best approach to response to this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that major authors and pianists came from a musical family and their first trainers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give recommendations 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 suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

Why Practicing is Difficult

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

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and correctly is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect 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 tutor is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective goals.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

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

A piano tutor will at all times be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best 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 correctly or not.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes 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.
