Caddens 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 Caddens traffic to get to your piano class.

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

Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Caddens piano classes?

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

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Caddens 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 Caddens 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 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 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 Caddens piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Caddens 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 classes 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 way to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.

Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest coaches 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 Rehearsal is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to develop or explain 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 rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor 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 rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.

Why Practicing is Tough

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 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 gradually and precisely is often a condition of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another small section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m over making things easier here, but the point is to aid us understand how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers expect that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs 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 trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a hard time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

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

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

A piano teacher will always be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
