Leichhardt 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 Leichhardt traffic to get to your piano class.
Do your piano teachers come to Leichhardt? And on which days of the week?
Please call 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 budget keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Leichhardt piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Leichhardt 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 Leichhardt piano teachers 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 Leichhardt 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 1 on 1? Why not Leichhardt group piano classes?
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 one on one 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 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 Leichhardt piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Leichhardt 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 classes 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 think the best way to response to 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 daily basis. We will often find that main writers and pianists came from a musical family 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 daily lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Sufficient
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The teacher listens to what the student practiced in the previous week. The tutor would then give ideas on how to develop or explain new ideas to develop 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 following week. The student would then rehearse for a week according to the teachers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Sadly this is very rarely the way classes happen. This all concludes one very important thing. That the student in fact rehearsed. Sadly more often than not the coach will come to a lesson only to discover that the student did not rehearse. Oh no! What does the trainer do now? Practice with the student of course!
That’s what happens 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 challenging.
Why Practicing is Hard
Let’s think about what we’re requesting young children, perhaps as young as 5, to do. The best way to practice is to take out all distractions sit down at the piano and work on parts of music that the student cannot yet play.
Playing from the start of a piece is more often than not an unproductive use of time. Playing a small section gradually and correctly is often a condition of good rehearse. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would need to trace one more minor section they are not happy with and do it once again.
I’m finished simplifying here, but the fact is to help us know how tough that is. How long should rehearse be? I would be pleased with 15 minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could focus effectively for fifteen minutes without getting unfocused. Or even better, how many grown-ups do you know that could do the same?
And yet trainers expect that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is rarely if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing occurs when the coach is sitting there. You have the trainer leading the student telling them what they need to practice and how many times to repeat it. The coaches can correct bad habits and incorrect pose. These are things a young child, or even an grown-up would have a difficult time doing in a fixated way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For full success lessons should be held as often as possible. If a student can afford lessons daily, they’ll develop many multiples quicker than a student having lessons once a week. It’s as straightforward as that. Most of the lessons will be the teacher just practicing with the student. But that rehearse is completely invaluable.
No not many of us can have enough money to take a lesson daily with their trainer. Not only that, but not everyone needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how frequent to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about just what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s define some collective objectives.
Objectives for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a diversion
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a career
If your objective for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons everyday indeed aren’t wanted. You may really be capable to even learn on your own!
A piano trainer will always be ready to lend a hand and craft the music sound the best it can. If budget is an 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 sincerely. It doesn’t happen frequently, but 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 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 whole spirit into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing beautiful music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
