Elanora Heights Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Elanora Heights traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Elanora Heights? 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Elanora Heights piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Elanora Heights 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 Elanora Heights 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 Elanora Heights 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 Elanora Heights group piano lessons?
Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 Elanora Heights piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Elanora Heights 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 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 consider the best approach 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 the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical family and their primary trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then give ideas on how to get better or impart new concepts to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually practiced. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Difficult
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to remove all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and precisely is often a condition of good practice. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor section they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the point is to assist us know how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that type of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the coach 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 coaches can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples sooner than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really depends on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one certain piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a career
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday really aren’t needed. You may actually be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can find a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music concept for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very honestly, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing beautiful music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
