Dundas 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 Dundas traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Dundas? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire 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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Dundas piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Dundas 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 Dundas 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Dundas 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 Dundas group piano classes?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 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 Dundas piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Dundas 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 lessons 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 personally think 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 frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical family 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 probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The tutor listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The teacher would then provide recommendations on how to get better or impart new ideas to develop the young 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 train for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not practice, but unfortunately even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment slowly and precisely is often a requisite of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point one more small section they are not comfortable with and do it once more.
I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how challenging that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate 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 expect that type of train 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 teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can put right bad habits and improper stance. 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 success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really depends on your objectives. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common objectives.
Ambitions 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 business
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano coach will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can discover a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, 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 at all times the top.
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 complete heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
