Fairlight Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?

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

Do your piano teachers come to Fairlight? 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 households without a piano.

When do you offer Fairlight piano lessons?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Fairlight 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 Fairlight 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 Fairlight 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 Fairlight group  piano classes?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Individual 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot faster than students learning in group lessons.

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 Fairlight piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Fairlight 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 courses once a week.

On the other hand 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 answer 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 past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them daily lessons.

Piano Training is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The coach would then provide recommendations on how to improve or teach 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 rehearse 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 hardly the way lessons happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what turns out if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.

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 train is to eliminate 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 piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and accurately is often a requirement of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another small segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to help us realise how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate well for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet coaches expect that style of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The teachers can put right bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.

How Often Should Lessons Be?

For full success lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely precious.

Realistically

No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons really depends on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

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

A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can discover a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything else, 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 indeed sincerely. It doesn’t happen often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional hour of music concept for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that comes from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
