Coalcliff Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Coalcliff? 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.

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

When do you offer Coalcliff piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Coalcliff 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 Coalcliff piano tutors 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Coalcliff piano trainers 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 Coalcliff group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 quicker 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 Coalcliff piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Coalcliff 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 myself consider the best way to answer 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 past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that key writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first tutors were frequently one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to improve 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 practice in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

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 practice is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts 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 small section slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another minor section they are not happy with and do it again.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid 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 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 grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors anticipate that kind of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting 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 rectify bad habits and improper stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your ambitions. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a all-time pursuit
  • Make it a job

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!

A piano teacher will continually be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three 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 finest.

You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
