Chippendale Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Chippendale traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Chippendale? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Chippendale piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Chippendale 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 Chippendale 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Chippendale 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 1 on 1? Why not Chippendale group piano lessons?
Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 individual lessons progress a lot quicker 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 Chippendale piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Chippendale 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.
Normally 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 believe the best approach to answer this enquiry 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 daily basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing 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 likely gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then give recommendations on how to improve or teach new concepts to develop 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 succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact trained. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the coach do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Hard
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 sort out on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different small segment they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet tutors anticipate that type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer 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 teachers can put right bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples quicker 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 rehearse is undeniably invaluable.
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 deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day really aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be helpful and create 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 learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight 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 beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
