Denistone Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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

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

Please touch base for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.

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 households without a piano.

When do you offer Denistone piano class?

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

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Denistone 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 Denistone group  piano classes?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 Denistone piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Denistone 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.

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 myself think the best approach 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 history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that major writers and pianists came from a musical family and their first 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 Practice is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide ideas on how to develop or impart new concepts to improve 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 rehearse for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

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 practice is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section bit by bit and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another minor section they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could focus well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers expect that kind of rehearse 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 train and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples faster than a student taking 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 train is absolutely invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really varies on your objectives. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s outline some common ambitions.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one certain piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a job

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be able to even learn on your own!

A piano coach will at all times be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place 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 always the best.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
