Kentlyn Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano class?
At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our trainers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Kentlyn traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Kentlyn? And on which days of the week?
Please touch base 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 great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Kentlyn piano class?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kentlyn 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 Kentlyn piano tutors 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 Kentlyn piano teachers 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 Kentlyn group piano lessons?
Group piano lessons are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. Private piano tutoring 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 lessons.
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 Kentlyn piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Kentlyn 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 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 lessons.
Some of the best pianists in the past likely had lessons on a day-to-day basis. We will frequently find that major authors and pianists came from a musical family and their earliest teachers were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and likely gave them daily lessons.
Piano Training is NOT Adequate
This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The trainer listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The teacher would then give recommendations on how to develop or explain 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 train in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would continue from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all assumes one very vital thing. That the student in fact trained. 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 trainer do now? Train with the student of course!
That’s what takes place if the student just did not rehearse, but sadly even if the student DID train this may still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is difficult.
Why Practicing is Challenging
Let’s think about what we’re asking young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to rehearse is to eliminate all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small segment gradually and accurately is often a condition of good rehearse. Then recapping it over and over and over. Then they would need to pin point another small segment they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished making things easier here, but the point is to help us realise how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be happy 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 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet coaches expect that kind of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing happens when the teacher 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 tutors can rectify bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Frequent Should Lessons Be?
For full effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. 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 straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that practice is absolutely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their coach. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons really varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some common ambitions.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a pastime
- Study serious as a all-time pursuit
- Make it a career
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons day-to-day really aren’t wanted. You may actually be able to even study on your own!
A piano coach will continually be supportive and create the music sound the best it can. If fund is an problem though, see if you can trace a tutorial of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything else, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely right or not.
But this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed honestly. It doesn’t take place frequently, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then additional hour of music principle for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are always the best.
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 complete 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!
