Church Point Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

Do your piano teachers come to Church Point? And on which days of the week?

Do I need to own a piano or keyboard?

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Church Point piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Church Point 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 Church Point 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 Church Point 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 Church Point group piano classes?
Group piano lessons 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group classes.
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 Church Point piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Church Point 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 classes 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 think the best approach to answer this question is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical background and their earliest coaches were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide recommendations on how to improve or explain new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more small segment they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to assist us know how challenging that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having 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 train is completely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some collective ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music concept 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
