Dural Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Dural? 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 cheaper keyboard is ok for beginners.

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

When do you offer Dural piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Dural 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 Dural piano tutors 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 Dural 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Dural group  piano classes?

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

Only the best Dural 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 myself think the best way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took lessons.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday 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 possibly gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then give recommendations on how to improve or impart new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the trainer will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!

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

Why Practicing is Challenging

Let’s think about what we’re asking 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 so far play.

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and correctly is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point a different small section they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how hard that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with fifteen 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 diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers anticipate 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 teacher 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 rectify bad habits and improper posture. 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 maximum success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples sooner than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably precious.

Realistically

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

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

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

A piano coach will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If budget is an problem though, see if you can discover 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 correctly or not.

However this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.

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