Cecil Park 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 Cecil Park traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Cecil Park? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 Cecil Park piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Cecil Park 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 5 can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.
Our Cecil Park piano tutors 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Cecil Park 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Cecil Park group piano classes?
Group piano lessons 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 1 on 1 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 Cecil Park piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Cecil Park 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.
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 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 classes.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical background and their first 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 day-to-day lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then give recommendations on how to get better or impart new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.
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 rehearse is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find one more minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us realise how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student taking 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 rehearse is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Think about just 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 hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even learn on your own!
A piano teacher will always be ready to lend a hand and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can find 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 accurately or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen often, however 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 always the top.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
