Kurnell 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 Kurnell traffic to get to your piano class.

Do your piano teachers come to Kurnell? And on which days of the week?

Please enquire 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 Kurnell piano class?

We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Kurnell 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 five can begin learning the piano and basic music theory.

Our Kurnell 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 Kurnell piano trainers 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 Kurnell group  piano classes?

Group piano tutoring are a great way for your child to socialise, but that’s about where the perks end. One on One 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 1 on 1 lessons progress a lot quicker than students learning in group tutoring.

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 Kurnell piano teachers qualifications?

Only the best Kurnell 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.

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 personally consider the best approach 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 history likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will often find that main composers and pianists came from a musical experience and their earliest teachers were frequently 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 Practice is NOT Adequate

This is how weekly piano lessons must work. The coach listens to what the student trained in the previous week. The tutor would then give suggestions on how to improve or impart new concepts to improve the new pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training 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.

Unfortunately this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact practiced. Sadly more often than not the tutor will appear to a lesson only to find that the student did not train. Oh no! What does the teacher do now? Rehearse with the student of course!

That’s what takes place if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID practice this may still be the outcome. 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 practice is to eradicate all diversions sit down at the piano and work on segments of music that the student cannot so far play.

Playing from the beginning of a presentation is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a minor section gradually and accurately is often a requirement of good practice. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more small segment they are not happy with and do it once again.

I’m over simplifying here, but the point is to help us understand how difficult that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be glad with 15 minutes from a young child and thirty minutes from an elder child. How many five year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting diverted. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?

And yet teachers expect that style of train every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the tutor 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 posture. 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 maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons daily, they’ll advance many multiples earlier than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as easy as that. Most of the lessons will be the trainer just rehearsing with the student. But that train is undeniably invaluable.

Realistically

No not many of us can afford to take a lesson everyday with their teacher. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed depends on your goals. Think about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some shared objectives.

Objectives for Piano Lessons

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

If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, evidently lessons everyday indeed aren’t desirable. You may actually be able to even study on your own!

A piano coach will at all times be supportive and craft the music sound the finest it can. If budget is a problem though, see if you can trace a lesson of the piece on YouTube. If you never desire to study anything new, then it matters a lot less whether you are playing absolutely accurately or not.

Although this all changes if you desire to, or you desire your child to take this indeed 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 theory for a total of four 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 full spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the joy that comes from playing captivating music is boundless. Don’t miss out!
