Killara Piano Lessons – Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to travel anywhere for my piano lessons?

At Piano Lessons In Your Home, our teachers teach you in your own home, ensuring you don’t waste time stuck in Killara traffic to get to your piano lessons.

Do your piano teachers come to Killara? 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 budget keyboard is ok for beginners.

Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for homes without a piano.

When do you offer Killara piano classes?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Killara 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 Killara piano teachers 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 musical journey.

What styles of piano music do you teach?

Our Killara 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 Killara group  piano lessons?

Group piano classes are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 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 Killara piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Killara 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 classes 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 lessons.

Some of the best pianists in history likely had lessons on a everyday basis. We will often find that main authors and pianists came from a musical family and their primary 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 everyday lessons.

Piano Rehearsal is NOT Sufficient

This is how weekly piano lessons ought to work. The coach listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The trainer would then provide suggestions on how to get better or teach new ideas to improve the young 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 practice for a week according to the coaches suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.

Sadly this is very hardly the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student actually rehearsed. Unfortunately more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not train. 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 unfortunately even if the student DID practice this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is hard.

Why Practicing is Difficult

Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to train is to eliminate all distractions sit down at the piano and sort out 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 small section gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to find another minor section they are not contented with and do it again.

I’m done simplifying here, but the point is to aid us understand how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus well for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?

And yet trainers expect that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an interesting thing occurs when the tutor is sitting there. You have the coach leading the student telling them what they need to rehearse and how many times to repeat it. The tutors can correct bad habits and improper posture. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.

How Frequent Should Lessons Be?

For full effectiveness lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll progress many multiples faster than a student having 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 absolutely priceless.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their trainer. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So determining how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared objectives.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

  • Play one exact piece
  • Play for my wedding
  • Be able to play as a pastime
  • Study serious as a lasting pursuit
  • Make it a profession

If your goal for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons daily really aren’t needed. You may really be able to even learn on your own!

A piano coach will continually be ready to lend a hand and create the music sound the finest it can. If fund is a issue though, see if you can find 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 accurately or not.

But this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your kid to take this indeed seriously. It doesn’t occur often, however I have a few students that would take an hour lesson 3 days a week, and then another hour of music theory for a total of 4 hours a week of lessons. These students are at all times the top.

You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very sincerely, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole heart into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the pleasure that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
