Frenchs Fores Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

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

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

Please touch base 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 budget keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.

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

When do you offer Frenchs Fores piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Frenchs Fores 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 Frenchs Fores piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 Frenchs Fores 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 1 on 1? Why not Frenchs Fores group  piano classes?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. 1 on 1 piano tutoring ensure that your child won’t get left behind, and can learn at their own pace.

In personal experience, piano students learning in private lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.

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 Frenchs Fores piano tutors qualifications?

Only the best Frenchs Fores 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.

Typically students take piano courses 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 personally think 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 past likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that key authors and pianists came from a musical experience and their first trainers were frequently 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 should work. The tutor listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The teacher would then give ideas on how to get better or teach new ideas to develop the young 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 practice for a week according to the teachers recommendations and this would carry on from week to week.

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

That’s what turns out if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID practice this might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is tough.

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 train is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts 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 segment slowly and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once more.

I’m finished making things easier here, but the fact is to aid us realise how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen 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 type of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the trainer is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a challenging time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can afford lessons day-to-day, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that train is completely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their coach. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective objectives.

Goals for Piano Lessons

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

If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly 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 supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.

But this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of four hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.

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 joy that comes from playing mesmerising music is boundless. Don’t miss out!

We are currently students at university's around Sydney  We live in various parts of Sydney and are looking for more 1 on 1 piano tutoring students in & around Sydney.
