Elizabeth Hills 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 Elizabeth Hills traffic to get to your piano classes.

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

Please call 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 perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Elizabeth Hills piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Elizabeth Hills 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 Elizabeth Hills 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 piano journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Elizabeth Hills 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 Elizabeth Hills group  piano classes?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 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 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 Elizabeth Hills piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Elizabeth Hills 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 classes once a week.

However 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 classes.

Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will often find that key 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 likely gave them everyday lessons.

Piano Practice is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then provide recommendations on how to get better or teach new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.

Unfortunately this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Train with the student of course!

That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.

Why Practicing is Difficult

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

Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and precisely is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another small segment they are not happy with and do it again.

I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy 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 unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches anticipate that style 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 tutor 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 tutors can correct bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a focused way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is completely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how often to take lessons indeed depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective ambitions.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one particular piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a diversion
  • Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
  • Make it a career

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

A piano tutor will always be supportive and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire 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 child to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of 4 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 seriously, you won’t get as much pleasure out of lessons as if you put your entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
