Homebush Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our tutors teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Homebush traffic to get to your piano lessons.
Do your piano teachers come to Homebush? And on which days of the week?
Please enquire for more information as well as for information on Saturday and Sunday piano lessons.
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 ok for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.
When do you offer Homebush piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Homebush 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 Homebush piano teachers 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 Homebush 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 Homebush group piano classes?
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 individual lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group classes.
Am I too old to start learning to play piano?
NO! There is no set age to start 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 Homebush piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Homebush 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.
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 approach to answer this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took classes.
Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that major composers and pianists came from a musical background 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 day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The trainer listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then provide ideas on how to develop or explain new concepts to improve the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some practice tips and suggestions on what and how to practice in the succeeding week. The student would then practice for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very vital thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the coach 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 takes place if the student just did not practice, but sadly even if the student DID train this could still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eradicate all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot until now play.
Playing from the beginning of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to pin point one more small section they are not contented with and do it again.
I’m done making things easier here, but the point is to aid us understand how tough that is. How long should train be? I would be happy with fifteen minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an older child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could be attentive effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers expect that kind of rehearse every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to train and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a focused 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 taking lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the tutor just rehearsing with the student. But that train is completely 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 goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some collective goals.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one specific piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a profession
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may really be able to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an issue though, see if you can find a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to learn anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
However this all changes if you want to, or you want your child to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then extra hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the top.
You become 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 entire heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing mesmerising music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
