Clarendon Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

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

Please enquire 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 cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.

When do you offer Clarendon piano class?

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

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private 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 faster than students learning in group tutoring.

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 Clarendon piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Clarendon 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 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 myself believe the best way to response to 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 olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first teachers were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to get better or impart new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.

Why Practicing is Tough

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to find one more small section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach 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 trainers can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a determined way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons day-to-day, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared objectives.

Objectives 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 career

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!

A piano tutor will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the best.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your complete 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!
