Glebe Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano classes?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Glebe traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Glebe? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano class.
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 Glebe piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Glebe 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 Glebe 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 Glebe 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Glebe 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 lessons 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 Glebe piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Glebe 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 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 consider the best way 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 major authors and pianists came from a musical background and their first tutors were frequently 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 Rehearsal is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The teacher listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The coach would then provide suggestions on how to get better or impart new ideas to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations 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 continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very hardly the way lessons happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the result. Why? Because practicing is hard.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment bit by bit and correctly is often a condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace a different small section they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to aid us understand how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate well 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 practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct 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 Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Think about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared goals.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a business
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t needed. You may actually be able to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will at all times be helpful and craft the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can discover 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.
But this all changes if you want to, or you want your kid to take this really seriously. 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 principle 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 honestly, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your full emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that comes from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
