Double Bay 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 Double Bay traffic to get to your piano lessons.

Do your piano teachers come to Double Bay? 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 households without a piano.

When do you offer Double Bay piano class?

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

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

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 Double Bay piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Double Bay 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.

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 history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then provide ideas on how to improve or impart new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

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

Why Practicing is Hard

Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot yet play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.

I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us know how difficult that is. How long should train 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 effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the tutor is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely priceless.

Realistically

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

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a hobby
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a business

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

A piano trainer will always be helpful and make 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 else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, but 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 four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.

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