Glenwood Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Glenwood traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Glenwood? 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Glenwood piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Glenwood 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 Glenwood 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 Glenwood 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 one-on-one lessons? Why not Glenwood 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 classes 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 classes.
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 Glenwood piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Glenwood 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 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 courses.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that main authors and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their primary coaches 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 Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to get better or impart new ideas 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 succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the tutors suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very important thing. That the student actually practiced. Sadly more often than not the teacher will come to a lesson only to find that the student did not practice. 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 rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID rehearse this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Tough
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to take out all diversions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor segment bit by bit and precisely is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more minor section they are not contented with and do it once again.
I’m over simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us know how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive well for fifteen minutes without getting distracted. 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 seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the teacher 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 trainers can put right bad habits and incorrect posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll progress many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably priceless.
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 deciding how often to take lessons indeed depends on your objectives. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.
Goals for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lasting pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, obviously lessons daily really aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano tutor will continually be helpful and make 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 desire to study anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely correctly or not.
However this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t happen frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of four 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 satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your full heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that arises from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
