Dawes Point 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 Dawes Point traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Dawes Point? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Dawes Point piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Dawes 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 Dawes Point piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Dawes Point 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 Dawes Point group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 one on one 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 Dawes Point piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Dawes 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.
Typically 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 myself consider 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 history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest tutors were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The coach would then give suggestions on how to get better or explain new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to train in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the trainer will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse 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 hard.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and precisely is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more small section they are not contented with and do it once more.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us realise how challenging that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the trainer is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a determined way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely priceless.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons really varies on your goals. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common ambitions.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one particular piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be helpful and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t take place often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
