Greenwich 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 Greenwich traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Greenwich? 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Greenwich piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Greenwich 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 Greenwich 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 Greenwich 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 Greenwich group piano lessons?
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 one on one lessons progress a lot faster 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 Greenwich piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Greenwich 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 lessons 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 myself believe the best way 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 olden times likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their first coaches were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and possibly gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then give suggestions on how to improve or teach new ideas to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and recommendations on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all assumes one very crucial thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. 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? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not practice, 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 rehearse is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on sections of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the start 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 condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace another minor segment they are not happy with and do it again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to aid us realise how hard that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches anticipate that type of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the teacher leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The trainers can rectify bad habits and incorrect stance. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a hard time doing in a determined way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just rehearsing with the student. But that rehearse is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their tutor. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons really varies on your ambitions. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common ambitions.
Ambitions 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 ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t wanted. You may actually be capable to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will at all times be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a issue though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your child to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur frequently, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then additional 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 sincerely, you won’t get as much enjoyment out of lessons as if you put your full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
