Maraylya 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 Maraylya traffic to get to your piano classes.
Do your piano teachers come to Maraylya? 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 cheaper keyboard is great for beginners.
Introductory keyboards are an easy and affordable option for households without a piano.
When do you offer Maraylya piano lessons?
We typically offer after school lessons, on weekday afternoons to evenings, our Maraylya 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 Maraylya 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 musical journey.
What styles of piano music do you teach?
Our Maraylya 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 Maraylya group piano classes?
Group piano lessons 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 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 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 Maraylya piano teachers qualifications?
Only the best Maraylya 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.
Usually 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 personally consider the best approach to response to this enquiry is to look at the best of the best and see how often THEY took courses.
Some of the best pianists in the olden times likely had lessons on a daily basis. We will frequently find that main writers and pianists came from a musical upbringing and their earliest tutors were often one of their parents. Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven just to name a few had parents who were musicians and probably gave them day-to-day lessons.
Piano Practice is NOT Enough
This is how weekly piano lessons should work. The tutor listens to what the student rehearsed in the previous week. The tutor would then provide suggestions on how to improve or teach new ideas to develop the young pianist both technically and musically. From there, they may add some training tips and suggestions on what and how to rehearse in the succeeding week. The student would then train for a week according to the trainers suggestions and this would carry on from week to week.
Unfortunately this is very rarely the way trainings happen. This all concludes one very crucial thing. That the student actually trained. Unfortunately more often than not the teacher will appear to a lesson only to discover that the student did not practice. Oh no! What does the tutor do now? Rehearse with the student of course!
That’s what happens if the student just did not train, but unfortunately even if the student DID train this might still be the outcome. Why? Because practicing is challenging.
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 rehearse is to remove all diversions sit down at the piano and sort out on sections 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 small segment gradually and correctly is often a requisite of good train. Then repeating it over and over and over. Then they would want to find a different minor segment they are not comfortable with and do it once again.
I’m done simplifying here, but the fact is to help us understand how tough that is. How long should practice be? I would be pleased with fifteen minutes from a young child and 30 minutes from an elder child. How many 5 year olds do you know that could concentrate effectively for 15 minutes without getting distracted. Or even better, how many adults do you know that could do the same?
And yet teachers anticipate that style of practice every week from their students. Realistically it is seldom if ever going to happen that way. But an exciting thing happens 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 teachers can correct bad habits and improper pose. These are things a young child, or even an adult would have a difficult time doing in a focused way.
How Often Should Lessons Be?
For maximum effectiveness lessons should be held as frequent as feasible. If a student can allow lessons everyday, they’ll advance many multiples faster than a student taking lessons once a week. It’s as simple as that. Most of the lessons will be the coach just practicing with the student. But that practice is completely precious.
No not many of us can afford to take a lesson daily with their teacher. Not only that, but not every person needs to become the next Mozart. So deciding how often to take lessons indeed varies on your goals. Contemplate about exactly what you’re looking for in lessons. Let’s describe some shared objectives.
Ambitions for Piano Lessons
- Play one exact piece
- Play for my wedding
- Be able to play as a hobby
- Study serious as a lifelong pursuit
- Make it a career
If your ambitions for piano lessons is just to play one piece, clearly lessons day-to-day indeed aren’t needed. You may really be capable to even study on your own!
A piano trainer will continually be helpful and create the music sound the best it can. If budget is an issue 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 correctly or not.
Although this all changes if you want to, or you desire your kid to take this really sincerely. It doesn’t take place frequently, 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 finest.
You get what you put in. If you don’t take lessons very seriously, you won’t get as much satisfaction out of lessons as if you put your whole emotion into it. As a pianist I can tell you that the happiness that arises from playing captivating music is immeasurable. Don’t miss out!
