Girraween 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 Girraween traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Girraween? 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 cheaper keyboard is perfectly fine for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Girraween piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Girraween 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 Girraween 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 piano journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Girraween 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 1 on 1? Why not Girraween group piano lessons?
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 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 Girraween piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Girraween 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 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 personally think the best approach to response to this question 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 frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest trainers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to develop or explain new concepts to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions 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 rarely the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear 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 happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might still be the result. 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 diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a minor segment slowly and correctly is often a requirement of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find another minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it again.
I’m over making things easier here, but the fact is to help us realise how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad 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 teachers expect that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the teacher is sitting there. You have the tutor leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers 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 determined way.
How Frequent 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 develop many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely priceless.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will continually 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 trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never want to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really seriously. It doesn’t take place often, 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 always 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 heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
