Edgecliff 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 Edgecliff traffic to get to your piano class.

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

Please call 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 homes without a piano.

When do you offer Edgecliff piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Edgecliff 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 Edgecliff piano teachers are experienced in tutoring 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 Edgecliff piano trainers 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 Edgecliff group  piano classes?

Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 faster 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 Edgecliff piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Edgecliff 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 consider the best way to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.

Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that key composers and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Enough

This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide ideas on how to get better or impart new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the following week. The student would then practice for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor 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 takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might 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 eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor segment they are not contented with and do it once more.

I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us know how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet tutors 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 occurs when the teacher 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 coaches can rectify bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples sooner than a student having 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 rehearse is absolutely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their coach. 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. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared ambitions.

Ambitions for Piano Lessons

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

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!

A piano trainer will at all times be supportive and make the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can discover a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music theory for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.

You get 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 heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
