Casula Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Casula? 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 Casula piano class?

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

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 one on one 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 Casula piano teachers qualifications?

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

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

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to improve or explain new ideas to improve the young 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 tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.

Why Practicing is Difficult

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts 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 minor section bit by bit and precisely is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another minor section they are not happy with and do it once more.

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

And yet trainers expect that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach 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 rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably precious.

Realistically

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

Goals for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a business

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

A piano tutor will at all times be supportive and make 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 study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional 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 joy that comes from playing captivating 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.
