Burwood Heights Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Burwood Heights? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Burwood Heights piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Burwood Heights 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 Burwood Heights piano tutors 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 Burwood Heights piano trainers 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 Burwood Heights group  piano lessons?

Group piano tutoring 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 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 Burwood Heights piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Burwood Heights 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 classes 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 myself 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 everyday basis. We will frequently find that major composers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give suggestions on how to get better or teach new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations 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 continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train 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 hard.

Why Practicing is Hard

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

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different small section they are not happy with and do it once more.

I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches 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 happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is undeniably priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may really be able to even learn on your own!

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

However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place 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 become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
