Campsie 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 Campsie traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Campsie? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Campsie piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Campsie 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 Campsie piano teachers are experienced in teaching 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 Campsie 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 Campsie group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 tutoring.
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 Campsie piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Campsie 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.
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 enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key authors and pianists came from a musical family 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 likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to improve or teach new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this might 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 practice is to eliminate 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 inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to assist us know how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that kind 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 coach is sitting there. You have the coach 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 improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a focused 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 develop many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective goals.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will always be supportive and make the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
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 complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
