Hinchinbrook 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 Hinchinbrook traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Hinchinbrook? 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 homes without a piano.
When do you offer Hinchinbrook piano classes?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Hinchinbrook 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 Hinchinbrook piano tutors are experienced in teaching 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 Hinchinbrook 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 Hinchinbrook group piano classes?
Group piano lessons 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 individual 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 Hinchinbrook piano tutors qualifications?
Only the best Hinchinbrook 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 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 consider the best way 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 daily basis. We will often find that key composers and pianists came from a musical family and their first tutors were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them everyday lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The trainer would then provide recommendations on how to improve or teach new ideas to develop the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and recommendations on what and how to practice in the following week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches recommendations and this would carry on 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. Unfortunately 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 trainer do now? Rehearse 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 might still be the result. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
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 rehearse is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an inefficient use of time. Playing a small section slowly and accurately is often a condition of good train. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to find a different minor segment they are not happy with and do it once more.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to help us know how hard that is. How long should train be? I would be pleased with 15 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 anticipate that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the coach 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 teachers can rectify bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a tough time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum success lessons should be held as frequent as possible. If a student can afford lessons everyday, they’ll develop many multiples earlier than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just practicing with the student. But that practice is undeniably invaluable.
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 frequent to take lessons really depends on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some common objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a job
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday really aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano teacher will continually be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is a problem though, see if you can trace a lecture of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything different, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
Although this all changes if you desire to, or you want your kid to take this really honestly. It doesn’t happen often, but I have a few students that would take an hour lesson three days a week, and then extra hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the finest.
You become what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much delight out of lessons as if you put your complete emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
