Cambridge Gardens Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Cambridge Gardens traffic to get to your piano classes.

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

Please enquire for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.

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 Cambridge Gardens piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Cambridge Gardens 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 Cambridge Gardens 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 Cambridge Gardens 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 Cambridge Gardens group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 private lessons progress a lot faster 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 Cambridge Gardens piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Cambridge Gardens 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 lessons once a week.

However 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 consider the best approach to answer this question 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 often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to develop or impart new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this could 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 parts of music that the student cannot until now play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another small segment they are not contented with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us understand how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely invaluable.

Realistically

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 objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a job

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even study on your own!

A piano teacher will always be helpful and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover a lecture 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.

But this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 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 honestly, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
