Cattai Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Cattai traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Cattai? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Cattai piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Cattai 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 Cattai piano tutors are experienced in tutoring 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 Cattai 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 Cattai group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 begin 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 Cattai piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Cattai 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 courses 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 personally consider the best approach to response to this question 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 day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their primary coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to develop or impart new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear 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 takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the result. 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 eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and correctly is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different small section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to help us understand how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults 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 occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is undeniably precious.
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 often to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common goals.
Ambitions 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 day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be helpful and make the music sound the finest 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 different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
You get 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 heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
